ATHENS, GA (WTVM) – Everyone was in a pretty good mood in Athens – except for the Gamecocks fans that drove from Columbia – following their 52-20 win over South Carolina on Saturday.

Love was especially in the air for UGA senior linebacker Jake Ganus, who took the good vibrations to propose to his girlfriend, Peyton Thomas, on the 50 yard line following the game.

Down on one knee and still in his uniform, the University of Alabama Birmingham transfer from Chelsea, AL got the win and a yes from his girlfriend.

The photos from the UGA Athletics Twitter account captured the happy moment for these two lovebirds in red and black. Even ESPN captured the sweet moment on the field. 

Ganus tweeted about the moment from his post on Instagram, writing: "Hey peytonthomas, what are you doing for the rest of your life?"

You can watch video of the proposal and the remaining crowd's reaction here

Congrats to the happy couple!
