According to the Macon Telegraph, Georgia president Michael Adams said it appears the SEC could be heading to a nine game conference schedule which was more than likely eliminate the Clemson-UGA rivalry.

"My own personal opinion is the games like the Clemson game will go away," Adams said. "And frankly that's okay. If the trade-off is another SEC game or the Clemson game, I think that's an okay trade-off. But if you go to nine games, and you play Tech, I don't think those 11 or 12th games are likely against Clemson or Ohio State, for that matter."
