The SEC’s 2018 football schedule isn’t expected to be released until later this month, but Georgia put out its full slate of games Wednesday morning for next season before removing it.

 

The schedule was captured by some in the media including the website SicEmDawgs.com.

Georgia’s first trip to LSU since 2008 is listed for an Oct. 13 date, two weeks before the annual game with Florida on Oct. 27 with an open date in between, according to the Twitter post that went up on Georgia’s official football account.

After playing South Carolina this year in November and last year in October, the Bulldogs will open SEC play in 2018 playing in Columbia on Sept. 8., the more traditional spot on the schedule.

Georgia did not respond for comment to confirm the schedule is accurate.

The seven-game home schedule includes three straight in Sanford Stadium to close the season: Auburn on Nov. 10, UMass on Nov. 17 and Georgia Tech on Nov. 24.

UMass and the other nonconference games were already set on the schedule including with Austin Peay on Sept. 1 to open the season and Middle Tennessee on Sept. 15

The league has put out schedules in mid-to-late September in recent years. The 2018 schedule will be released “soon,” according to spokesman Chuck Dunlap.
