Boise State is coming to Atlanta for season-opening games in 2011 and 2014, including next season's opener against Georgia in the Georgia Dome.
The 2011 game will be the first that does not match a Southeastern Conference team against an Atlantic Coast Conference team.
(Georgia athletic director Greg) McGarity said the offer to play Boise State in Atlanta, about 90 miles from Athens, "was too good an opportunity to turn down."
"We thought with the opportunity to take a No. 4 BCS-ranked Boise State with the University of Georgia, we've got two powerful nationally known football brands," (Chick-fil-A Bowl president Gary) Stokan said. "It is my belief Georgia will be nationally ranked next year, along with Boise. It is our mission is to put the best game together on the opening weekend of football."
It's a lose/lose situation for UGA, and a loss for the ACC as well.
Just how desperate are UGA and Mark Richt? Is the ACC getting the shaft? Discuss.
