Many Georgia Football fans filed into Vanderbilt Stadium on Saturday night and witnessed the Bulldogs defeat Vanderbilt 30-6. Judging by the noise and colors in the stadium, the game was more like a home game for Georgia.
The Georgia Football team won their home opener this past week, in a convincing win over the Vanderbilt Commodores. Except it wasn’t their home opener, the game was in Nashville, Tennessee.
Georgia Fans Take Over Vanderbilt Stadium
Vanderbilt Stadium was a sea of red, as Georgia Bulldogs fans poured across the border into the neighboring northern state. As television cameras panned around the Commodores stadium, only a small student section was arrayed in Vanderbilt’s colors. Jeff Sentel of the AJC questioned rather he was actually in Commodore Country.
The matchup got underway and the Georgia Bulldogs fan base was most definitely heard. With each good play that the Dawgs made, there was a distinct roar among the crowd. When the Dawgs scored touchdowns, the sound was deafening.
On the other hand, during the rare occasion that Vandy made a good play, there was mostly silence. Chants of “Geor-gia Bull-dogs” rang throughout the venue as the game went on.
At the start of the fourth quarter, phone flashlights twinkled throughout the Nashville night sky, as UGA fans lit up Vanderbilt Stadium. This is a newer tradition that the fan base typically would do, during a night game at Sanford Stadium.
It was an incredible scene to behold. Jake Rowe of 247sports.com captured the scene perfectly in the following tweet:
