ATHENS, Ga. - A Georgia Tech student accused of hacking the University of Georgia's online calendar and posting a message stoking the schools' football rivalry has been indicted.

The Athens Banner-Herald reported Tuesday (http://bit.ly/1rxPS2p ) that 21-year-old Ryan Gregory Pickren is charged with computer trespassing for allegedly posting a calendar entry days before the Georgia-Georgia Tech game.

The newspaper reports the entry for noon on Nov. 29. Georgia Tech beat Georgia 30-24 in Athens in overtime. UGA Vice-President for Public Affairs told the newspaper the listing was quickly discovered and removed.

UGA police submitted evidence to an Athens-Clarke County grand jury. Pickren surrendered Dec. 22 and was released after posting $5,000 bond.

It's unclear if Pickren has an attorney. A phone number for him could not be located.
