ONE OF THREE AGAINST SEC EAST
MURFREESBORO – In a joint release with the University of Georgia on Tuesday, it was announced Middle Tennessee and Georgia will meet in football during the 2018 season. The Blue Raiders will receive a guarantee of $1.7 million to play the game.
The Blue Raiders will travel to Athens on Sept. 15 to face the Bulldogs for the second time in school history. The only other meeting between the two schools came in 2003 with No. 8 Georgia taking a 29-10 victory between the hedges.
