If Georgia fans were willing to travel to Pasadena, Calif., to see their team face Oklahoma in the College Football Playoff semifinal, you better believe they’re ready to show up for the national championship game festivities in their backyard.
On Saturday morning, media day for the national championship game has begun, and the Bulldogs are first up. Just like it did for the Rose Bowl, the national media has taken notice of Georgia fans making their presence felt.
Here’s a look at some photos from media day.

This is nothing new for Georgia fans, who have traveled very well this year at big games such as those at Notre Dame, against Florida in Jacksonville or vs. Auburn in the SEC Championship Game.
However, the turnout last week in Pasadena was particularly impressive, considering it was across the country and against the Sooners, which has its own proud fan base.
