Are you ready Bulldog Nation. Today is the day! Georgia will take the field in the legendary Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena, California and will face the No. 3 Oklahoma Sooners for not only the Rose Bowl Trophy but a chance to play in the College Football Playoff National Championship game a week from today back in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. It’s “win or go home” time!

This is only Georgia’s second appearance in the Rose Bowl game. The Bulldogs first appearance was in the 1943 Rose Bowl following the 1942 college football season. Georgia defeated UCLA by a score of 9-0 on a New Year’s Day Friday.
Now, some 75 years later, another SEC Champion Georgia Bulldogs team returns to Pasadena seeking a Rose Bowl Trophy and a chance to vie for a National Championship. The names have changed and even the designs of the jerseys and helmets, but these 2017 Dogs’ championship hearts bleed red and black just as those of the ’42 team.
