At long last, game day is upon us! Hopefully, the Bulldogs will be able to get back on the winning track in Lexington this afternoon, and, as you cheer the Red and Black on, please feel free to share your comments on the contest in Commonwealth Stadium, and on all the day’s college football action, below.
This also marks the occasion for naming this week’s Dawg Sports honorary game day captain. Today’s honoree is none other than Rex Robinson, whose 29-yard field goal with three seconds remaining on the clock enabled the 1978 "Wonderdogs" to overcome a onetime 16-7 deficit and claim a 17-16 victory over Kentucky on the road.
The Georgia team that took the field 30 years ago did not win a national championship, just as the Georgia team that takes the field this year will not . . . but Robinson would go on to a stellar career, one that included an extra point in Knoxville to give the ‘Dawgs the 16-15 win that began the 1980 national championship drive.
