ATHENS - Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs will be the only SEC program to have its spring football game on TV, ESPN announced Monday.

Georgia’s G Day will begin at 4 PM EST - later than the Bulldogs’ traditional 1 PM start for spring games. 

All other programing in the SEC and beyond being shown on ESPN’s many platforms will be streaming. The move from ESPN isn’t a surprise. The defending national champion of college is often featured on ESPN or ESPN2. 

The Bulldogs one of the most-watched teams in the sport. Georgia joins Colorado as the only two football programs with their spring games being telecast on traditional ESPN outlets. Texas’ spring game will be on the soon-to-be eliminated Longhorn Network, which has a very limited footprint.

The Gators are holding thier spring game on a weeknight for the second year in a row - this time on a Thursday night in the Swamp. Miami is holding their spring game a day later on Friday, April 14. 

ESPN also announced Monday that Georgia’s Pro Day would be telecast on the SEC Network.

The Bulldogs finished the 2022 season undefeated for the first time since 1980. Georgia’s 65-7 win over TCU in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game was the program’s second in as many seasons. 

No program has gone back-to-back as national champions since Alabama reached that accomplishment with Kirby serving as Nick Saban’s defensive coordinator in 2011-12. Georgia’s Stetson Bennett completed his long journey in college football as one of the few signal callers to win the national title as a starter in two seasons. 

Bennett’s improbable march to the mountaintop doesn’t match the rest of the Dawgs’ powerful program, which is loaded with five- and high-star recruits who were coveted by nearly every program in the nation. 

The Bulldogs have tied the school record for consecutive wins with 17 straight going back to last season’s CFP semifinal/Capital One Orange Bowl win over No. 2 Michigan.  From 1945-47, Georgia had a stretch where it won 17 games in a row. In addition, Georgia secured its 868th all-time win in 2022 - good for ninth place for most wins in FBS history.
