Georgia to honor ’80 team by wearing ‘red britches’ vs. Arkansas

ATHENS – Georgia football’s famous red pants are making a return in 2020. And if the Bulldogs can beat Arkansas, it will be a triumphant one.

Georgia will wear its rarely-used “red britches” in the Sept. 26 season opener against the Razorbacks in Fayetteville, Ark. The gesture is an homage to the 1980 Bulldogs, who wore them once that season, the season-opener against Tennessee, paired with white jerseys as a road uniform. This year is the 40th anniversary of that undefeated national championship season. A commemorative patch is prominently displayed on the chest.
