Georgia football coach Kirby Smart leads his Bulldogs onto the field against Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl national semifinal following the 2017 season.

Georgia and Oklahoma have scheduled football games for the 2023 and 2031 seasons, the two schools announced Monday.

The Bulldogs and Sooners will meet in Norman on Sept. 9, 2023, and the rematch will occur in Athens on Sept. 13, 2031. Georgia defeated Oklahoma 54-48 in double-overtime at the Rose Bowl national semifinal following the 2017 season, which serves as the lone meeting between the two programs.

"We look forward to building on what was a great matchup in the Rose Bowl," Georgia coach Kirby Smart said in a release. "Oklahoma and Georgia are two of the biggest name brands in college football, and these will be great games in Norman and Athens."

Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity added that playing Oklahoma enhances "our continuing efforts at scheduling quality opponents outside the SEC."

The Bulldogs now have at least one quality nonconference foe in addition to state-rival Georgia Tech in 14 of the next 15 seasons, with 2021 being the exception. Georgia is scheduled to play Notre Dame this year, Virginia in 2020, Oregon in 2022, Oklahoma in 2023, Clemson in 2024, UCLA in 2025-26, Florida State in 2027-28, Texas in 2028-29, Clemson in 2029-30, Oklahoma in 2031 and Clemson in 2032-33.
