Georgia Football Fans Prepare For Another Bucket List Venue


College football provides a unique fan experience, and one of the reasons for this is the spectacular stadiums that the sport offers across the country. UGA, of course, is blessed with one of the best as Sanford Stadium in Athens holds the 10th most fans out of any stadium in America at 92,746.

This Saturday at 3:30 pm EST Georgia will play in one of the few stadiums that hold more fans than Sanford. Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge holds over 102,000 fans, good for the 6th most in the nation.

History shows that Tiger Stadium provides one of the rowdier atmospheres in all of sports. In 1988, fans cheering on the LSU Tigers against Auburn literally caused an earthquake. It registered on a seismograph, and is now remembered as The Earthquake Game.

During last season’s magical run, dedicated Dawg fans got to travel to some special stadiums where they watched special games. From beating Notre Dame in South Bend to pulling off a miracle at the Rose Bowl and playing two crucial games in Mercedes Benz Stadium in Atlanta, UGA was creating memories all over the map.

This season, Georgia can only hope to recreate the magic. This Saturday’s showdown in Tiger Stadium will provide an opportunity for another road memory under Kirby Smart’s young reign.

UGA and LSU don’t meet very often, but when they do it tends to be a ranked showdown that lives up to the hype. Most recently, in 2013, #9 ranked UGA edged out the #6 Tigers 44-41 in Athens, while the last meeting in Baton Rouge in 2008 saw #9 UGA beat #11 LSU 52-38. Despite Georgia’s recent success, LSU still holds the overall series lead 16-13-1.

This Saturday’s showdown in Baton Rogue marks the first true test for the Bulldogs this year, and it will be a joy to see how things unfold.
