A word of advice to Georgia fans traveling to Baton Rouge for Saturday’s game with LSU:

Enjoy it.

Because if the SEC scheduling model does not change, you won’t be going back until 2030.

Georgia-LSU is one of those strange SEC games that really hasn’t been played enough to be called a full-blown rivalry. The two were charter members of the SEC when it was founded in 1933. That was 85 years ago.

Contrast: Georgia and Auburn, who started playing long before SEC membership, have met 122 times. Saturday will mark only the 31st time Georgia and LSU have met in football.  Only 11 of the 30 previous games have been played in Baton Rouge.

So if this game is on your bucket list I would take care of that this week.
