Bulldogs Close Out Home Slate With Senior Night Against Rebels

Georgia concludes its 2023 home schedule Saturday against No. 10 Ole Miss with kickoff set for 7 p.m. on ESPN. The Bulldogs hold a 32-13-1 edge in the series with the Rebels. Georgia had won 10 straight in the series until the last meeting which came in 2016 in Oxford as the Rebels snapped the streak with a 45-14 decision in Kirby Smart’s first season at the helm. Ole Miss’ last trip to town came in 2012 when the Bulldogs won 37-10. ESPN College GameDay returns to Athens for the first time since last year’s win over No. 1 (CFP) Tennessee. The Bulldogs are 6-2 when GameDay visits Athens.

Georgia will recognize its Seniors before the game, and they are 46-3 in their career, which ranks second in victories for a class in school history. The 2022 Senior Class went 49-5 with a pair of national titles. Also of note, Georgia enters Saturday’s game with a 24-game home winning streak which has tied the school mark set from 1980-83.

Georgia is 10th nationally in Scoring Offense at 39.3 points per game. The other three teams are Michigan (9-0), Penn State (8-1) and SMU (7-2).
