Though a home-and-home series between Clemson and Georgia has been in the works since 2005, conference realignment may have reared its ugly head once again when it comes to scheduling conflicts.
Georgia’s athletic director Greg McGarity confirmed Tuesday that UGA and Clemson are in talks of possibly canceling a two-game series that was expected, as of last year, to be the season-opener for each school in 2013 and ’14.
According to Dawgs247, Clemson initiated the talks after the ACC agreed to a nine-game conference schedule last month. And although South Carolina state lawmakers shot down legislation proposing the Clemson-South Carolina game be assured of its continuation, it sounds as though Clemson wants to make sure that game does continue.
With just two non-conference games available, Clemson reportedly wants to ensure they’re able to have seven home games annually. Georgia was set to visit Clemson on Aug. 31, 2013 with the Tigers returning the favor the next season. As far as the South Carolina game, Clemson would travel to Columbia in 2013 before hosting the Gamecocks in 2014.
