UCLA football has put another big name on its schedule.
The Bruins announced on Wednesday that they will play a home-and-home series against Georgia in 2025 and 2026, both of which will be played as season openers. UCLA will host first at the Rose Bowl on Aug. 30, 2025, and travel to the Bulldogs’ Sanford Stadium on Sept. 5, 2026.
The series is the Bruins’ third against an SEC opponent in the next decade. The program is also set to play against Texas A&M (2016-17) and LSU (2021, 2024).
UCLA also announced a nonconference home game against Southern Alabama on Sept. 17, 2022. That game comes a week after the Bruins start a home-and-home series against Michigan at the Big House.
