WATCH: Glorious Saturday night ahead for Georgia football, here’s why …
ATHENS — Georgia football has a glorious weekend planned, all centered around Saturday’s prime-time, nationally-televised Top 10 showdown with Notre Dame.
The No. 3-ranked Bulldogs (3-0) are a two-touchdown favorite over No. 7 Notre Dame (2-0) in one of the most built up games of the season.
It has been the most expensive ticket throughout the offseason, fans of both programs perhaps anticipating another classic duel after UGA’s exciting 20-19 escape from South Bend in 2017.
ESPN.com reported that Vivid Seats reflects it to be the fourth most expensive ticket for a college football game in the past five years at an average of $611.
UGA will set an attendance record, as 500 temporary seats have been added for the game to accommodate 8,000 Notre Dame fans after the Irish provided Georgia with 8,000 tickets in 2017, per the 2014 agreement.
ESPN’s popular “College GameDay” show will be on hand in Athens for the first time since 2013, adding to a Georgia hype machine running at its max.
Even the weather is expected to cooperate, with temperatures expected to fall into the low 80s by the time the game starts, shortly after 8 p.m.
Ultimately, what happens on the field is going to be what Bulldogs’ fans remember, and there are many reasons to believe the team wearing red will stage a performance for the ages.
