ATHENS – Around midnight Monday, Georgia sold the last ticket to Saturday’s football opener against Louisiana-Lafayette.
That means the Bulldogs’ streak of consecutive home sellouts has reached 58, extending into a 10th season.
The last Georgia home game not to sell out was the Nov. 25, 2000, game against Georgia Tech.
Tickets had been available to Saturday’s opener because Louisiana-Lafayette relinquished most of its allotment. The Ragin’ Cajuns were contractually entitled to 4,500 tickets but wound up selling 490, leaving UGA with the other 4,010 to sell.
Georgia currently has no tickets available to any of this season’s home games in 92,746-seat Sanford Stadium, although it’s possible that some could become available if returned by an opponent later in the season. Opponents can return tickets from their allotments until three weeks before a game.
The Bulldogs’ opener kicks off at 12:21 p.m. Saturday.
Note: At noon today, and each Tuesday during the season, Mark Richt will hold a news conference to discuss the week’s game. Please follow @ajcuga on Twitter for instant updates.
