Jacob Eason’s experience in the Georgia Dome as a player went much better than it did as a fan.
The Georgia quarterback, who played his first collegiate game in the Georgia Dome against North Carolina, showed up to the Packers-Falcons NFC Championship Game in a Brett Favre Packers jersey.
A fan captured a picture of Eason and his teammate, Isaac Nauta, that went viral during halftime of the game. At the point in the game, the Falcons were up 24-0.

As it became apparent later on that Falcons were going to knock off the Packers, Eason conceded that the Falcons were the better team and that Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan was the MVP.

Eason threw 16 touchdowns and 8 interceptions in his first with the Bulldogs. He completed 8 of his 12 passes for 131 yards and a touchdown in the game against North Carolina.
With the Georgia Dome closing, Eason will have a chance to play for SEC championships in the brand new Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
