Georgia unveils incredible Sanford Stadium tribute to Vince Dooley, Charley Trippi
The Georgia Bulldogs, ranked third in the College Football playoff poll, will host top-ranked Tennessee on Saturday in the first game at Sanford Stadium since legendary Bulldogs Charley Trippi and Vince Dooley passed away.
In tribute to both men Sanford Stadium will have their signatures on the Bulldogs sideline this weekend and presumably for the rest of the season.
