Spots in Athens to watch Bulldogs take on Irish

This Saturday, the University of Georgia Bulldogs will travel to South Bend, Indiana, to take on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

 

It is the first time the two teams have met on the gridiron since 1981, when the Dawgs defeated the Irish for the 1980 National Championship.

While many Georgia fans will be making the more than 700-mile trip to South Bend to watch the game, a majority will be supporting the Dawgs from home.

For those sticking around, there are plenty of opportunities to watch the 7:30 p.m. fight between the Dawgs and the Irish right here in Athens.
