Georgia will open the 2022 season against a Power Five and Pac-12 opponent, the Oregon Ducks, at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. 

 The game will take place on Sept. 3, 2022, and is the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff game, which takes place annually. This will be Georgia's fourth time participating in the game, with previous games against Boise State (2011) and North Carolina (2016). The Bulldogs are set to face Virginia in 2020. 

"We're thrilled to be able to bring together two historic programs for the first time in more than four decades," said Bob Somers, Peach Bowl, Inc. chairman. 

Georgia and Oregon have only met one time previously. The Bulldogs defeated the Ducks 27-16 in 1977 at Sanford Stadium in Athens.
