UGA-Georgia Southern football time announced

A kickoff time was announced Thursday morning by Georgia for its upcoming football game with Georgia Southern.

The matchup, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 17, will kick off at 1:30 p.m. UGA announced the news in a release Thursday.

Broadcast arrangements and information are still being finalized but the game falls into the one game pay-per-view or point-to-point telecast provisions. However, kickoff time in this case is at the discretion of the University.

"We felt the 1:30 p.m. 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," said UGA director of athletics Greg McGarity.

The Bulldogs played Georgia Southern in 1992, 2000, 2004 and 2008 and won all of those meetings. The two teams also are scheduled to meet in 2016.
