Latest Bulldog News

  • By Georgia Sports Communications ATHENS, Ga. --- Georgia junior linebacker Roquan Smith has now been included on the All-America First Team by the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) FBS Coaches’, the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA), Sporting News, Walter Camp and the Associated Press. Smith, a native of Montezuma, Ga., becomes the fourth Bulldog over the last 20 years to earn unanimous NCAA First Team All-America honors joining Champ Bailey (1998), Drew Butler (2009) and Jarvis Jones (2011-12). In addition, senior offensive tackle Isaiah Wynn and senior tailback Nick Chubb were named to the AFCA All-America Second Team and Wynn was also an AP and College Football Madness Second Team All-American. Also of note, quarterback Jake Fromm and right tackle Andrew Thomas garnered ESPN Freshman All-America honors this week. Smith has also been named a First Team All-American by ESPN, SI.com, Bleacher Report, College Football Madness and The All-American while Wynn was also on the Bleacher Report’s First Team. Smith became the first Bulldog to win the Butkus Award this season, which is given to the nation’s most outstanding linebacker. He was also a finalist for the Nagurski Trophy and Bednarik Award, which are given to the country’s most dominant defensive player. Wynn, a native of St. Petersburg, Fla., Chubb, a native of Cedartown, Ga., Fromm, a native of Warner Robins, Ga., and Thomas, a native of Lithonia, Ga., directed an offense that has averaged the Southeastern Conference’s third-best scoring offense (34.9 ppg) this season while posting the nation’s seventh-best rate for third down conversions (47 percent).  The Bulldogs captured their first SEC title since 2005 and went an undefeated 6-0 versus teams from the league’s Eastern Division for the first time since the SEC split into divisions in 1992. The third-seeded Bulldogs (12-1) travel to Pasadena, Calif., to face second-seeded Oklahoma (12-1) in the College Football Playoff’s semifinal round in the Rose Bowl Game on Monday, January 1. Kickoff is at 5:10 p.m. ET.
  • The portions of the Georgia Dome that remained standing after the building’s implosion last month will be brought down next week, officials said Wednesday. A “supplemental implosion” has been scheduled for 1 a.m. Dec. 20 to demolish a long wall on the stadium’s east end and a structure around Gate B on the northwest corner.  The Georgia World Congress Center Authority, which operated the Dome, said the second implosion “has been determined to be the safest method to bring down the remaining infrastructure still standing.”  The GWCCA said these precautions will be taken:  • Traffic will be suspended on Northside Drive from 12:30 a.m. until 1:30 a.m. on Dec. 20. Traffic will be re-routed at Ivan Allen Boulevard and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard.  • MARTA rail service from Five Points to Vine City will be suspended beginning at 11:30 p.m. on Dec. 19, with bus shuttle service available as an alternative.  • A 450-foot secured “safety zone” will be in effect around the Georgia Dome’s perimeter.   • No public viewing areas will be provided. Most of the 25-year-old Georgia Dome succumbed to 4,800 pounds of explosives Nov. 20. But the two portions survived because some of the explosives did not detonate.
  • College football fans earlier this season voted on the best mascot in the sport. It wasn’t really a contest. Georgia’s English Bulldog, Uga, has long been a college football favorite. The line of dogs dates back to 1956 when Uga I, “Hood’s Ole Dan,” first took the field for the home opener against Florida State. Today, Uga X reigns over a Bulldogs team chasing its first national title since 1980. Channel 2 Action News and The Atlanta Journal-Constitution are your home for everything Rose Bowl.

He hid in the Sanford Stadium hedges before there was a dog house. Uga II, 1966-72 - During his reign, Georgia played in five bowl games and won two SEC championships. Uga III, 1972-80 - Appeared in six bowl games in nine years and closed out his career with Georgia's 1980 national championship. Uga IV, 1981-89 - The first Georgia mascot to attend a bowl game every year of his service. Uga V, 1990-99 - Appeared on 1997 Sports Illustrated cover declaring him the nation's best college mascot.

Uga VIII, 2010-2011 - Served just six games before missing the bowl game after a diagnosis of lymphoma. Uga IX, 2012-2015 - “Russ,” the half-brother of Uga VII, served a full season with interim status until promoted in 2012. Uga X, 2015-present - Known as “Que,” he officially took over reins on Nov. 21, 2015. This article was written by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
