What to expect, see at 2018 G-Day

Georgia’s annual spring football game concludes the Bulldogs’ practice schedule.

Saturday’s G-Day scrimmage at Sanford Stadium will see a few changes and debuts.

Stadium gates 2-9 will be open as usual, but Gate 10 (Gate under the bridge/ next to the Tate Center) will be closed construction of the West End Zone complex. Georgia will restrict seating to sections of the stadium. The school asks fans to enter through the gate closest to section they’d prefer to view the game. 

The famed Dawg Walk won’t be in the Tate Center parking lot as usual. It will take place in the pathway between the Tate Center and Miller Learning Center at 2:50 p.m. (It is the same path used during the G-Day two years ago.)

Kirby Smart’s third Red vs. Black scrimmage as head coach will mark the anticipated first look of star quarterback recruit Justin Fields, who will matchup against last year’s freshman starter Jake Fromm.

Among the Sanford Stadium improvements this year are a new sound system and a brand-new Daktronics high-definition LED video board that is 30 percent larger than the previous one at 52 feet high by 100 feet wide.
