UCLA has confirmed a few upcoming college football contests for Bruin fans to look forward to, if they are willing to wait a few years that is. It could also send head coach Jim Mora back to the state of Georgia, where he was previously ther head coach of the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons, if he’s still around on the UCLA sideline by then.
UCLA has announced a future home-and-home scheduling agreement with Georgia in 2025 and 2026. The Bruins also confirmed a home-and-home series with Cincinnati that has been in the works for a while now. The Bruins and Bearcats will tango in 2018 and 2019. Today’s scheduling news also included a home game against South Alabama in 2022.
The series with Georgia will begin in the Rose Bowl on August 30, 2025 to start the brand new season. Georgia will host UCLA the following season on September 5, 2026 for another potentially noteworthy season opener. It is refreshing to see power conference teams open the season against each other in a college football stadium, isn’t it? Of course, there is plenty of time to start working out neutral site options if the money is right. Everything has a price after all. For Georgia, the scheduling of UCLA will satisfy a SEC non-conference scheduling requirement of having at least one game against another power conference opponent. Of course, that requirement is already set by having rival Georgia Tech at the end of the season. So this is just a nice bonus challenge.
UCLA’s series with Cincinnati will also begin on the west coast with the Bruins serving as host on September 1, 2018. UCLA will visit Cincinnati the next season on August 31, 2019. A game previously scheduled against San Diego State in 2019 has been moved to the following week, September 7. UCLA will host South Alabama on September 17, 2022. Make your reservations now.
