ATHENS, Ga. — Visits by Notre Dame and Texas A&M highlight the University of Georgia’s 2019 football schedule, which was announced Tuesday.

The Southeastern Conference announced schedules for all 14 member institutions on Tuesday.

Georgia, which is ranked second in the nation this year with a 3-0 start, will start next season with a conference game at Vanderbilt on Aug. 31.

The Bulldogs then will return home for three straight games Between the Hedges: Murray State on Sept. 7, Arkansas State on Sept. 14 and Notre Dame’s first visit to Athens on Sept. 21.

Georgia rallied to beat Notre Dame 20-19 in South Bend, Indiana, on Sept. 9, 2017. It was the first start for UGA quarterback Jake Fromm, then a true freshman who was called on the week before when Jacob Eason was injured in the season opener against Appalachian State.

Fromm went on to start the rest of the season and led the Bulldogs to their first SEC title since 2005. Georgia advanced to the College Football Playoff national championship game, losing to Alabama in overtime.

Georgia has played Notre Dame only one other time, beating the Fighting Irish 17-10 in the 1981 Sugar Bowl to clinch the 1980 national title.

The game will pit two of college football’s top programs. Notre Dame ranks sixth all-time with 889 wins while Georgia is 11th with 811.

After an off week, Georgia will be back in SEC play for a visit to Tennessee on Oct. 5, then welcome South Carolina and Kentucky.

Georgia will get its customary off week before the Nov. 2 rivalry game against Florida in Jacksonville.

November will bring games against Missouri, at Auburn, against Texas A&M and at Georgia Tech to wrap up the season.

Georgia and Texas A&M will be playing for the first time since the Aggies joined the SEC in 2012. The teams haven’t met since the Bulldogs’ 44-20 victory in the 2009 Independence Bowl.

Texas A&M hasn’t played in Athens since the Georgia 1980 national championship team swatted the Aggies 42-0 on Sept. 13, 1980. UGA leads the series 3-2.
