Did you know that University of Alabama was a rival of Georgia Tech? According to Georgia Tech’s Director of Athletics, Todd Stansbury, they were. He states, “Alabama is one of Georgia Tech’s oldest and most frequently played rivals, so we are very proud to renew the series for the first time in nearly half a century and allow new generations of fans to enjoy the excitement of the rivalry.”
“On the other hand, Georgia State is an opponent that we have never faced in football, despite the close proximity of our campuses and the relationship that we share as members of the University System of Georgia. It will be a lot of fun to square off in a neighborhood matchup and to give our fans another opportunity to come out and see the Yellow Jackets play right here in Atlanta.”
Georgia Tech will play Georgia State on Aug. 31, 2024 at Bobby Dodd Stadium and then Georgia State Stadium on Sept. 19, 2026
Georgia Tech will play Alabama on Aug. 31, 2030 in Atlanta and Aug. 30, 2031 in Tuscaloosa, Ala.
We are excited about the State vs. Tech matchup here in the city of Atlanta and hopefully this will be a great game for the fans! We can’t help but wonder if UGA will schedule any games with Georgia State now? We shall see
