Alabama and Georgia Tech announce home-and-home football series


TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – Alabama and Georgia Tech announced a home-and-home football series between the two programs for the 2030 and 2031 seasons on Wednesday.

“We are pleased to secure another home-and-home for our future football schedules with the addition of Georgia Tech for the 2030 and 2031 seasons,” said Alabama Director of Athletics Greg Byrne. “The Crimson Tide and Yellow Jackets were regulars on each other’s calendars from 1902 to 1984, and we look forward to renewing the series between our two programs.”

The first game will take place in Atlanta on Aug. 31, 2030, with Georgia Tech returning the trip to Tuscaloosa on Aug. 30, 2031.

“We are excited to announce the addition of another outstanding home-and-home series,” Alabama head coach Nick Saban said. “Our administration has made it a point over the past several years to continue to improve our schedule and this is another great example. Georgia Tech and Alabama have a long history of great football games and we are looking forward to continuing that tradition.”

Alabama and Georgia Tech will meet for the 53rd time, renewing an old rivalry that hasn’t been played since 1984. The Crimson Tide owns a 28-21-3 edge in the series. Tech won the last meeting in Atlanta, 16-6, on Sept. 15, 1984, with the Tide prevailing the prior season, 20-7, in Birmingham. The two teams first met in 1902 with Alabama claiming a 26-0 victory in Birmingham. The programs were Southeastern Conference opponents from 1933 until the Yellow Jackets departure in 1964.

With the addition of Georgia Tech, Alabama has added eight home-and-home series to future schedules recently, including: Texas (2022 & 2023), Wisconsin (2024 & 2025), Florida State (2025 & 2026), West Virginia (2026 & 2027), Notre Dame (2028 & 2029), Oklahoma (2032 & 2033) and Virginia Tech (2034 & 2035).
