Dawgs complete 2010 schedule
Georgia's 2010 football schedule is finally complete.
Tuesday, the Bulldogs announced that they will host Idaho State in an interconference football game slated on be played in Athens on Nov. 6 of next year.
The Bulldogs will play the Bengals following their Oct. 30 game against Florida and before the contest against Auburn on Nov. 13.
A member of the Big Sky Conference, this will be the first meeting between the two schools.
Earlier this year, Idaho State dropped a 50-3 decision to Arizona State.
Georgia opens the 2010 campaign against Louisiana-Lafayette. The Bulldogs also have a non-conference game at Colorado (Oct. 2) while Mississippi State replaces LSU on the SEC portion of the schedule. The Bulldogs travel to MSU on Sept. 25.
According to the Idaho State website, the Bengals will not play Cal Poly in 2010, and the Bengals and Athletic Director Jeff Tingey will either pay the forfeiture penalty or line up a game for Cal Poly with another school, as Tingey did this year with Cal Poly when worked it out so that Weber State could play Cal Poly.
Georgia is the second SEC school that ISU will have faced in the previous six seasons, as the Bengals lost to Kentucky 42-29 in 2005, a game ISU led 29-28 with 5:14 to go. Interestingly enough, Georgia last week kicked a late field goal to beat Arizona State in Athens. The Bengals and ASU played earlier this year, with the Sun Devils winning 50-3.
"Certainly it will be a daunting task, but playing the University of Georgia will allow us to extend our University footprint to the eastern United States," said Director of Athletics Jeff Tingey in a statement. "We look forward to the opportunity to play in another storied college football venue."
The Bengals will receive $525,000 for playing Georgia, after receiving $500,000 last year for their game with the Oklahoma Sooners. Idaho State will receive $200,000 from Utah State, plus ISU will have an allotment of 1,000 tickets to sell for that game, with those proceeds going to Idaho State.
