Bulldog Nation celebrates a big win in home opener

The University of Georgia Bulldogs dominated Auburn University in their first home game this year, winning 27-6 in front of a socially distanced crowd of 20,524 and an ESPN national audience. Even with pandemic-related precautions — tailgating restrictions, no Uga X on the sidelines, contactless entry, a smaller crowd, face masks — Bulldog Nation celebrated on a beautiful autumn day in Athens. UGA photographer Andrew Davis Tucker captured the scene, from ESPN Gameday in Sanford Stadium to the fourth-quarter light-up.
