Georgia will finnally return home to play Auburn, Charleston Southern and Georgia Tech in a three-game home stand to end the season.

The SEC released the entire 2014 schedule saying in a release: "The 2014 schedule is based on a 12-year rotation of conference opponents, which includes six divisional contests for each team, along with games against one permanent non-divisional opponent and one rotating non-divisional opponent."

Meaning the Bulldogs will not host Arkansas in 2015, but will travel to Auburn that year.

The 2014 schedule does have a first - it is the first time in the history of Georgia football that both Auburn and Georgia Tech will play in Athens in the same season. Georgia traditionally ended its season with one of the two for decades. But SEC scheduling seems to have put a permanent hiccup in the Auburn series dates for home and away.

The last time Georgia faced Georgia Tech and Auburn in the same city was in 1914 in Atlanta - and Georgia didn't score in either contest. The Dawgs lost to Tech 7-0 and tied Auburn 0-0.

The 42-day stretch between home games in 2014 is the longest road stretch since the 2004 Bulldogs went on 4-1 on the road at Arkansas, vs. Florida, at Kentucky and vs. Auburn. The road slate in 2004 was also 42 days long.
