Tech to play the Citadel in 2019


Georgia Tech will play the Citadel in 2019. The game will be played Sept. 14 at Bobby Dodd Stadium.

The Citadel will receive $400,000 for the game.

For its non-conference schedule, Tech will also play South Florida Sept. 7 and Georgia Nov. 30, both at home. The Citadel game was originally scheduled for Aug. 31 when contracted in August of this year, but was later pushed back two weeks.

The Jackets are scheduled to also play Tulane in New Orleans that season, but the school was considering canceling it. Beyond its standard seven-game league ledger against the other six teams in the Coastal Division and Clemson, the Jackets will also play a home game against N.C. State.

The Citadel, an FCS team in the Southern Conference, runs an option-based spread offense similar to Tech’s. It will be the 11th game against the Bulldogs. The two teams last met in 2001, a 35-7 win for the Jackets.

It was originally reported that the Citadel game was to be played Aug. 31, 2019. Through an open records request, AJC received an amendment to the game contract Friday morning noting the change of date.
