The Georgia Bulldogs and Florida State Seminoles have agreed to a home-and-home series in 2027 and 2028, Florida State announced Tuesday.

The Seminoles will host Georgia in Tallahassee on Sept. 4, 2027; the Bulldogs will host the second game on Sept. 16, 2028 in Athens. The game in 2027 will mark the first time the two schools have played in the regular season since 1965, a game won by FSU.

“This is a series with history dating back to the early years of FSU football, and I’m glad we are resuming it,” FSU coach Willie Taggart said. “These two games will be great for fans of both programs, especially those interested in traveling to experience the atmosphere here in Tallahassee or in Athens, and will give us another opportunity to play in front of our large group of alumni in the state of Georgia.”

The last time the teams met was the 2003 Sugar Bowl, a game won by Georgia, 26-13.
