Clemson, Georgia will play again in 2013, 2014



CLEMSON, S.C. - Clemson and Georgia have agreed to a home-and-home series in 2013 and 2014, the schools said Thursday.

The two teams first played in 1897 and most recently played a two-game series in 2003 and 2004 with Georgia taking both games.

In 11 meetings from 1978 to 1990, each team won five games and there was one tie - eight of the games, including the tie, were decided by a touchdown or less.

The Bulldogs will travel to Clemson in 2013 and the Tigers will go to Athens the following year.

Combined with an announced series against Vanderbilt in 2012 and 2013 and the annual in-state rivalry game against South Carolina, the Tigers will play three of its four nonconference games in 2013 against Southeastern Conference teams. Clemson is in the Atlantic Coast Conference.

"We have been working with Georgia since the NCAA announced Division I teams could add a 12th game," said Clemson senior associate athletic director Dwight Rainey. "There is certainly great history between the two programs and it is a very attractive series from a national standpoint."
