Colorado, Georgia Tech to play in 2025-26 to Celebrate 1990 National Championships

It might be 25 years in the making, but Colorado and Georgia Tech have locked in a home-and-home series for the 2025 and 2026 football seasons as a celebration of the 25th anniversary of the national championship that was split between the two programs.

The Buffaloes and Yellow Jackets both finished their 1990 campaigns with 11 wins and won the Big 8 and ACC respectively, thus causing a decision to award both teams with a share of the trophy.

With no playoff at the time, the split decision eventually lead to the founding of the Bowl Alliance in 1992, which was replaced by the BCS in 1998, eventually arriving at the CFP in 2014. The series will serve as the first ever meetings between the two programs, and Colorado’s first matchup with an ACC team since 2008’s loss at Florida State.

Georgia Tech’s last game against a Pac-12 opponent was a 21-7 win over USC in the 2012 Sun Bowl.
