Ohio State decided that they would cancel the home-and-home series with Georgia because of the Big 10/PAC 12 scheduling partnership.
Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity told reporters Thursday at the SEC spring meetings that Ohio State backed out of an agreement to play the Bulldogs in 2020 and 2021. The Big Ten/Pac 12 partnership, which ultimately will have 12 intra-conference matchups, is set to begin in 2017, although Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith told ESPN.com the school likely won’t begin participating until 2018.
The schools had agreed to schedule the home-and-home series for the 2020-2021 seasons, but no formal contract was in place. The agreement was set to be nullified on June 30th of 2012 if the dates to play were not agreed upon by that time.
