ATHENS - Dawg Post fills you in on how to watch as Kirby Smart’s No. 1 UGA football kicks off the 2023 college football against the Tennessee Martin Skyhawks


Kirby Smart's No. 1 Bulldogs enter the season as the odds-on favorites to win it all for the third time in three seasons. Kirby announced earlier this month that Carson Beck would be the program's starting quarterback for the 2023 season. He is scheduled to make his first start against Tennessee-Martin. The Dawgs are considered heavy, heavy favorites to win the game. 

Due to the cancellation of a previously scheduled matchup at Oklahoma, Georgia plays host to four consecutive games at home to start the 2023 campaign, including South Carolina in game three to start its Southeastern Conference slate. The last time the Bulldogs played four straight contests in Sanford Stadium was in 2004, topping Marshall, LSU and Vanderbilt before falling to Tennessee in those showdowns. The last schedule that featured four home games to start Georgia’s season was in 1999. That year, the Bulldogs went 4-0 with victories over Utah State, South Carolina, UCF and LSU.

Two of Georgia’s first non-conference opponents, Ball State and UT Martin, the Bulldogs have never faced. Georgia has played UAB twice, winning both, including a 56-7 win in 2021.
