Ryan Gregory Pickren, a 21-year-old Georgia Tech student, has been indicted after being  accused of hacking the University of Georgia's online calendar and posting a message stoking the schools' football rivalry.

The Athens Banner-Herald reported Tuesday that is charged with computer trespassing for allegedly posting a calendar entry days before the Georgia Tech-Georgia game.

The newspaper reported the entry was made 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, according to The Associated Press.

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