Blog: Another 2015 football opponent

Georgia has lined up another future football game for a big payday.

The school has a memorandum of understanding to play Louisiana-Monroe in 2015 for a $1.2 million guarantee, according to a copy obtained by the Athens Banner-Herald. That would be the largest payout Georgia has ever paid an opponent to schedule a game.

The game against the Sun Belt Conference opponent is slated for Nov. 7, 2015. It was first reported by Sicemdawgs.com.

The terms include a $1.2 million cancellation buyout, according to the document signed by both schools’ athletic directors on July 12.

Also in 2015, the Bulldogs are tentatively scheduled to play Southern on Sept. 5.

Georgia and Louisiana-Monroe last played in 2005. The Bulldogs won 44-7 and are 3-0 all-time against the school.

Georgia had already hit the $1 million mark for guarantees. It will pay $1 million to play Florida Atlantic in 2012.
