Report: Georgia adds home game vs. Kent State to 2022 football schedule


Georgia recently made another addition to its 2022 football schedule, as the program has reached an agreement to host Kent State.

According to the Athens Banner-Herald, Georgia will pay the Mid-Atlantic Conference school $1.9 million for the contest at Sanford Stadium on Sept. 24, 2022.

Georgia is paying Middle Tennessee $1.7 million in 2018 and Arkansas State $1.8 million in 2019 for those nonconference games.

Georgia’s other announced nonconference opponent for 2022 is in-state rival Georgia Tech.

This will be the first matchup between the teams since 1998, when Georgia defeated Kent State 56-3 in Athens.

Kent State finished 3-9 last season. The Golden Flashes are coached by Paul Haynes, who is entering his fifth season.

Kent State’s challenging 2017 slate includes road games at Clemson and Louisville.
