Georgia Tech and Georgia are not moving their 2011 game to the Georgia Dome.
Georgia athletic director Damon Evans says he gave "careful consideration" to the idea of making the game the 2011 season opener before deciding it was not in Georgia's "best interest."
The game is traditionally played at the end of the regular season on campus sites.
Officials from the schools discussed playing the game in the Georgia Dome as a neutral-site game.
Evans said in a statement released on Tuesday night that Georgia did not want to give up a home game and play the rivalry game two consecutive years in Atlanta.
