ATHENS - Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldog can always count on Dawg fans to support the program no matter where the game is played.  

There was no “light show” for Georgia Bulldog fans to celebrate with going into the 4th quarter, but Dawg Nation still celebrated in big fashion after the 3rd quarter. There was a lot for Bulldog fans to be happy about as they went into the final quarter of their game against Kentucky with a comfortable 24-7 lead.
