Protect the Puppies

Jim Wood

On Saturday, the Dawgs will face Vanderbilt as the Homecoming opponent for the 25th time. You will get to see everything you've come to associate with a Homecoming game at Georgia: former cheerleaders pumping up the crowd, former Redcoat Band members performing, and the crowning of the Homecoming King and Queen. However, you may also notice a lot of pink in the Sanford Stadium crowd. That's because October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Bulldogs Battling Breast Cancer is asking everyone to "Pink Out Sanford" for this game.

Both the UGA Paint Line and Spike Squad will be decked out in pink, and yes that's Tralee Hale from last year's Kentucky game.


If you're unfamiliar with Tralee's battle with cancer, or just need a refresher, here's a great story from January.

If you want to participate in the pink out, but don't have anything to wear...fear not. Bulldogs Battling Breast Cancer has you covered. You can pick up your own Protect the Puppies t-shirt from The Red Zone online or at 186 East Clayton Street in Athens.

For those who don't want to mix up their traditional game day attire, there are more ways to participate! BBBC is also running a points pledge. They are asking people to pledge a dollar amount per point scored by Georgia across the Vanderbilt and Florida games. If you want to make a pledge, just tag the @bbbc_athens account on Twitter with the amount you pledge.

If you want to know more about Bulldogs Battling Breast Cancer, and all of the events they have going on this month, check out our interview with Dwight Standridge of BBBC from the latest episode of My God a Podcast.

Go Dawgs!
