UGA, GA Tech fans swarm Sanford Stadium area for early tailgating

ATHENS, GA (CBS46) -

The noon kickoff for the Georgia Tech-Georgia game in Athens required an early wakeup call for fans of both schools, if they hoped to squeeze in drinks and food before the game.  By 7 a.m. Saturday morning, tailgaters were already lined up on Sanford Drive, near the gates to Sanford Stadium.

"It's cold, but it's fun," said UGA fan Matt Tovrog.  "It's the last game of the season, so you gotta do it."

With the game on the UGA campus, Yellow Jacket fans appeared mostly outnumbered before the kickoff.

"I've seen maybe 10 Tech fans since I've been here," said Georgia Tech student Patrick Covington.

"We haven't been heckled too much, but we come here with thick skin," said Georgia Tech fan Andrew Gast.  "It's fair game if they (Georgia fans) want to do it."
