ATHENS, Ga. - Colorado and Georgia agreed Tuesday to a home-and-home football series beginning in 2006 to help them fill the 12th spot on the recently expanded college football schedule.
The Buffaloes will play in Athens on Sept. 23, 2006, and Georgia will return the visit in the 2010 season. The Buffs, strapped for cash after years of shortfalls, will receive $750,000 for their trip to Georgia - the biggest payout Colorado has ever gotten for a road game.
Georgia will get $825,000 for the return trip; the amount his higher because it is being adjusted for inflation.
Bulldogs athletic director Damon Evans also said Georgia will play host to the University of Alabama-Birmingham in 2006. UAB will play in Sanford Stadium on Sept. 16, the week before Colorado.
South Florida promoted assistant Rod Smith to offensive coordinator Tuesday to replace Mike Hobbie, who resigned last month.
Smith had spent the last four years as the pass game coordinator for the Bulls, after a year at Clemson studying under current West Virginia coach Rich Rodriguez. Smith had also played quarterback under Rodriguez at Glenville State.
Hobbie resigned to pursue private business interests.
The Bulls also hired Greg Gregory, a former offensive coordinator at Ohio and Army, as the team's new offensive assistant coach.
