ICYMI: Chick-fil-A Classic Kickoff Time Set
Kickoff for the Georgia-Oregon matchup on ABC in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Classic is set for 3:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, Sept. 3, in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
The Oregon vs. Georgia matchup will feature the defending Pac-12 North Division Champion Ducks squaring off with the defending College Football Playoff National Champion Bulldogs. Georgia is making its third appearance in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game after most recently defeating UNC 33-24 in Kirby Smart’s first victory as a head coach in 2016. Meanwhile, Oregon will appear in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game for the first time in the program’s history. This will mark only the second time the two football programs have met after the only previous meeting resulted in a 27-16 home win for the Bulldogs in 1977.
Both teams will battle for The Old Leather Helmet Trophy, one of college football’s newest rivalry-style icons. Traditionally, winners of The Old Leather Helmet don the helmet on the field after the game, starting with the head coach and then rotating from player to player as the team celebrates its victory.
This will mark only the second time the two football programs have met. The one previous meeting resulted in a 27-16 home win for the Bulldogs in 1977. The 2022 Georgia-Oregon matchup will mark the Bulldogs’ third appearance in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game. The Bulldogs previously defeated North Carolina 33-24 in the 2016 and fell 35-21 to Boise State in 2011. Georgia was scheduled to face off against Virginia to open the 2020 season in Atlanta, but the matchup was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
