Fans got some great college football news on Wednesday. While the 2023 season has to be played first, opponents for the 2024 season are drawing a lot of intrigue. This is the first year where USC and UCLA will be in the Big Ten and with Texas and Oklahoma coming to the SEC, there are lots of tantalizing regular season matchups on the horizon. A huge one was teased today with college football powerhouses Georgia and Alabama set to meet in 2024.
College Football News: Georgia Vs. Alabama In 2024
This will be only the fifth regular season matchup in the last twenty years. They have met in the SEC championship game many times but because they are in opposite divisions within the SEC, they often do not meet during the regular season. These two programs have won five of the past eight national championships making this matchup must-see television. The rest of the schedule will be announced tonight but this is the main highlight.
More Huge Matchups
This wasn’t the only big college football news of the day. Sources say that Texas will play Texas A&M which will be their first meeting in over 10 years. With the conference realignment, the SEC made sure to keep rivalries intact. Oklahoma and Texas will still play each other yearly and Alabama will continue to face LSU. College football is built on these types of rivalries so it is great to see the SEC prioritize keeping those matchups.
Be on the lookout for more college football news in the coming days. The Big Ten has already announced their 2024 opponents and how the structure of their new conference will work. There will be lots of exciting matchups in the coming years but seeing Georgia and Alabama slated for a clash is something that should get college football fans jumping out of their seats.
