We picked up Chick-Fil-A on the way to finding a place to park. We parked about 3 blocks from the stadium (much closer than in Athens!!) in the parking lot of a local store and tailgated with some people we met from Claxton. Vendors had booths and tents set up right in front of the stadium. We walked through a sea of orange to get to our seats. We entered the stadium on the opposite side from our seats so we got to check out the brand new stadium as we walked all around it on the upper concourse to our seats. There were two sections of Georgia fans across from each other. The rest of the stadium was nothing but orange. Georgia started out great by scoring the first touchdown. It was a good game and the Cowboys fans are some of the nicest fans we have ever met. OSU won 24-10 and after the game the fans we talked to all wished us a safe trip home.
