Petition Closed

The annual Auburn-Georgia football game is a tradition that predates the South Eastern Conference. In fact, it is known as the "oldest rivalry in the south." The two schools have played in football every year since 1892, with the only breaks being 1917, 1918, and 1943 (for WWI and WWII). A recent report from the Atlanta-Journal Constitution (http://blogs.ajc.com/jeff-schultz-blog/2012/02/08/georgia-auburn-game-could-be-sacrificed-in-sec-scheduling/) states that the annual game may be lost due to scheduling with the addition of Texas A & M and the University of Missouri to the SEC. We recognize that change occurs, but there are many possible solutions to conference scheduling that will allow the annual Auburn-Georgia game to continue. We insist that SEC Administrators and Athletic Directors explore those options and preserve this annual game. College football is built on history and tradition, and a tradition as important as this one simply must continue.
