It’s still minutes away from kickoff, but the refs are already having to separate UGA and Alabama players.
As Alabama ran out of their designated tunnel – conveniently located in front of the UGA student section – UGA players ran over and started jumping up and down in front of the Alabama players. This set off a few moments of chest-thumping and smack talking before referees came over to separate the two teams.
The last time UGA crowded around an opponent’s tunnel was at the Belk Bowl last season when UGA defeated Louisville 37-14, behind Nick Chubb’s record-breaking performance.
Chubb could have another record-breaking performance today, but it already looks like these two SEC powers are ready to get after it.
Almost got ugly pre game. Alabama and Georgia players barking. Refs separate them. pic.twitter.com/0rzui88i5O
