The Georgia Bulldogs are scheduled to host the Kent State Golden Flashes on Saturday, September 24, 2022 at Dooley Field at Sanford Stadium in Athens, Georgia.
Bulldog fans looking to watch the Georgia-Kent State football game unfortunately won’t find it on traditional television. The game will be a streaming-only event on SEC Network+ and ESPN+ and it will kick off at noon ET.
Why is the game streaming only? As part of the SEC-ESPN contract, ESPN owns the right to broadcast at least one non-conference game per school on ESPN+. The kickoff time and streaming news for this contest was officially announced by the SEC when it revealed its season start schedule on May 26.
