12 reasons to go to Knoxville for Saturday's Georgia-Tennessee game
Despite the fact that Trinity is fresh off a huge win over Williams, don't get sucked into spending your Saturday tailgating in Hartford when you can make a pilgrimage to watch one of the SEC's most underrated rivalries instead. The 6th-ranked Georgia Bulldogs are rolling into Knoxville this weekend -- a town every college football fan should visit -- and it's not too late to go. Here are 12 reasons why you should gas up the Subbie and hit the road
1. With Lane Kiffin finally getting the axe from USC last week (somebody find that man a high school coaching job), the Vol faithful should be in especially festive spirits
2. Every college football fan should see at least one game at Neyland Stadium. Built in 1921 and boasting a capacity of 102,455, it's the largest stadium in the SEC and third largest in the country, behind Michigan and Penn State. It's enclosed and loud; plus, Neyland sits on the banks of the Tennessee River, and is set against the backdrop of the Great Smokey Mountains, so the views are stunning.
3. Coming off a hard-fought win over LSU last weekend, the Dawgs could be primed for a big let-down game. Emphasis on "could". Remember, a #5 UGA barely hung on last year at home against UT in a 51-44 shootout that went down to the wire. Yes, different Vol offense, but if they're able to pull off the upset, Knox Vegas is going to go absolutely bat$h!t. And you'll be glad you were there.
