In a series that explores the logic-defying comebacks and tough losses, the dramatic interceptions, fumbles, game-winning field goals, and touchdowns that shape a fan’s greatest memories of their beloved team, this book does not disappoint as the ultimate collector’s item for Bulldogs fans. It chronicles the most famous moments in the University of Georgia’s football history, including the “onside kick” against Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl in 1981, David Pollack's strip of the football against South Carolina in 2002, Belue-to-Scott for 93 yards to defeat rival Florida, Fran Tarkenton's fourth down touchdown pass in 1959, and “excessive celebration” in 2007. The descriptions of each play are accompanied with game information and quotes from participants, players, and observers with firsthand accounts.
