Miami doesn’t plan to schedule Georgia, Mark Richt says

The Hurricanes have SEC opponents scheduled in 2018 (LSU) and 2019 (Florida), but no marquee season-openers planned beyond that.

What adding a neutral-site game against Georgia, Mark Richt‘s former school?

Interesting as it would be, Richt said he wasn’t looking to schedule a regular-season game against the Bulldogs anytime soon.

“Hopefully in a playoff game or a bowl game that’s significant,” Richt said Thursday during a Hurricane Club speaking engagement in Atlanta. “Right now I’ve got enough scheduled out for a while now.”

UM has faced UGA 14 times since the first meeting in 1937. The teams haven’t played since 1966. UGA is 7-4-1 against UM. The Hurricanes are 70-86-3 against teams currently in the SEC, though it has played games against five in the last two decades (and Texas A&M, South Carolina, Missouri weren’t in the conference when they played UM, and Arkansas was an SEC member for one of its three games).

In case you were wondering, how Miami has fared against those teams:

Alabama: 3-14 (last meeting 1993)
Auburn: 4-7 (last meeting 1984)
Arkansas: 3-0 (last meeting 1991)
Florida: 29-26 (last meeting 2013)
Georgia: 4-7-1 (last meeting 1966)
Kentucky: 3-5 (last meeting 1963)
LSU: 3-9 (last meeting 2005)
Mississippi: 1-2 (last meeting 1951)
Mississippi State: 2-3 (last meeting 1983)
Missouri: 3-0 (last meeting 1989)
South Carolina: 8-6-2 (last meeting 2014)
Tennessee: 1-2 (last meeting 2003)
Texas A&M: 2-1 (last meeting 2003)
Vanderbilt: 4-4 (last meeting 1981)
