Georgia has set a 1:30 p.m. kickoff time for its Nov. 17 home football game against Georgia Southern.
Broadcast arrangements are still being finalized for the game, but it is likely to air on WSB-TV in Atlanta.
“We felt the 1:30 kickoff would give the fans the best timetable for tailgating opportunities before the game and will provide ample time to return home following the game,” athletic director Greg McGarity said in a university release.
Since this is the one game on the Bulldogs’ schedule that the school could choose as a “point to point telecast” over the air or on pay-per-view, Georgia had the discretion of selecting when the game would be played.
