Georgia Tech’s 2019 game vs. Notre Dame pushed back a year

0 Comments

Fans of Georgia Tech will have to wait an extra year for the next matchup with an iconic college football program.

As part of a flurry of scheduling news that involves a handful of FBS programs, Tech has confirmed that its 2019 game against Notre Dame has been pushed back to the 2020 season.  That game will be played Nov. 14 at Bobby Dodd Stadium in Atlanta.

The Yellow Jackets’ future games with the Irish, as part of that football independent’s scheduling agreement with the ACC, will remain unchanged — 2021 in South Bend, 2024 in Atlanta.

As we have noted previously, Tech also moved up a future home-and-home with USF.  That series, originally scheduled for 2021-22, has been moved up to 2018 in Tampa and 2019 in Atlanta.

Additionally, Tech has reached an agreement for a one-off game with Bowling Green for Sept. 29, 2018.

And, finally, per the release, “the 2018 game between Georgia Tech and Tulane has been cancelled and the status of the 2019 Tech-Tulane contest is to be determined.”  Tulane did the cancelling of the 2018 game, and will be obligated, per the agreement signed by both schools, to pay Tech $300,000.

Tulane is willing to eat that buyout because it will play Ohio State that season in a game that will net the athletic department in excess of $1 million.
