COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - While many Georgia fans took the short trip up to Atlanta to see their team compete in the Capital One Bowl, some die-hard fans stayed in Columbus to root for the Bulldogs. News Leader Nine caught up with a few fans who were spending their New Year's Day counting down to a hopeful win.
While most people are recovering at home from their New Year's Eve celebrations, a few Columbus residents chose to spend the day heading back to the bar.
Life-long Bulldog fan, Tommy Darsey said, "Just came out to have a good time and enjoy with my buddies the last football game of the year that Georgia's playing in and we're glad to be in the Capital One Bowl."
Allan Johnston, a fan for seven years, agreed, "Its good. I'm glad we got picked for the Capital One Bowl. It's going to be a good match-up."
They may cheer for the same team, but they all have different ideas of how the final score will turn out.
"I think Georgia will pull through. I mean, it's not looking good now, but they're going to come back and show their true colors," Jeremy Bailey told News Leader Nine.
David Kannady predicted, "Georgia will win 21 to 14."
