SPECIAL THANKS BOWL HISTORY HONORS 68 | 58th AutoZone Liberty Bowl TCU GEORGIA BOWL EVENTS WELCOME “BULLDOGS” On Nov. 3, 1920, Morgan Blake of the Atlanta Journal wrote a piece on school nicknames and stated, “The Georgia ‘Bulldogs’ would sound good because there is a certain dignity about a bulldog, as well as ferocity.” Following a scoreless tie with Virginia in Charlottesville on Nov. 6, 1920, Atlanta Constitution writer Cliff Cheatley used the name “Bulldogs” in his game story five times. The name has stuck ever since. “UGA” In the last 100 years of intercollegiate football, Georgia’s Uga has established himself as the nation’s most well known mascot. The line of pure white English bulldogs, which epitomizes everything Georgia, has been owned by the Frank W. “Sonny” Seiler family of Savannah, Ga., since Uga I first graced the campus in 1956. The current Georgia mascot is Uga X. He was introduced officially on Nov. 28, 2015 before the Georgia Southern game. Formerly known as “Que,” he succeeded his grandfather, Uga IX, affectionately known as “Russ,” who retired at the age of 11. “GLORY, GLORY” Among Georgia’s oldest and most-lasting traditions is the school fight song, “Glory, Glory,” which is sung to the tune of “The Battle Hymn of the Republic.” It was sung at games as early as the 1890s. There have been many Bulldog songs through the years and at least two collections dating back to 1909 have been published, but none have enjoyed more acceptance than “Glory, Glory.” BULLDOG CHEERLEADERS A long tradition of excellence defines the UGA Spirit Program. Dedicated to cheering the Bulldogs to victory, these athletes work extremely hard year round. GEORGIA SPIRIT
