I walked by Sanford Stadium, butI didn't attend a game on this trip. I have attended games here on 4 separate occasions, and I can tell you it is a great place to watch a football game.

There is nothing...and I mean NOTHING...like being in Sanford Stadium for a UGA home football game. The stadium is everything a college football stadium should be. Be sure to check out the little cemetery dedicated to the Bulldog's mascot, UGA. It's a little creepy, but unique. Go Dawgs!

I like to go to Sanford Stadium to watch UGA beat up on opposing teams. If you are young, the student section is where you want to be. Be sure to have pre-game drinks if you are a normal college student.

It's big. It's loud. It's obnoxious. UGA's Sanford stadium is an intimidating place for players and fans of football alike, but a great place to watch college football on Saturdays. Views from the stands are good, and the atmosphere is exactly what you'd expect from SEC fans. However, the concessions are hard to access, and big games can be very... More

Will be spending a lot of time here in the next four years. If you can't get into the spirit here, take up another sport. Fans are great, facilities are good and the games are very entertaining. Go Dawgs!

There really isn't a bad seat in the place and we tried out a few at the Georgia-Kentucky game. Our tickets were actually in section 602, row 20 (you can't get any higher). We'd brought a friend who had never been to a Georgia game, so after the 1st quarter we moved down to the back of section 135 so... More

There is nothing like the home of the Georgia Bulldogs. If you never experienced a game on a crisp fall afternoon, it should be on your bucket list if even you are not a big football fan. The only downside for me is a few fans who might become over exuberant, usually due to alcohol consumption. You will almost certainly... More

I'm a Georgia graduate so what would you expect me to say! BUT it's true!! Beautiful campus and the stadium is the crown jewel of the university.
