NCAA Sports Teams in Georgia
From the UGA Bulldogs to the GT Yellow Jackets
In Georgia, the college sports landscape is dominated by the University of Georgia Bulldogs and the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets – but don't sleep on other top programs like the Savannah State University Tigers, and the Mercer University Bears. There's a wealth of exciting college sports action all pretty much all year long – visit soon and check it out.
Athens is Bulldogs territory. Visit the campus of the University of Georgia during the fall and head for Sanford Stadium, home of the Georgia Bulldogs football team. Seating more than 92,000 fans, Sanford Stadium comes to life on college football game day. Visit Athens from nearby cities like Commerce and Winder during the fall and enjoy an elite-level college football experience.
Late in the fall and throughout the winter, the Georgia Bulldogs basketball team takes Athens by storm, playing home games at the Stegeman Coliseum. The Bulldogs participate within the South Eastern Conference in all major sports. If you're coming in from out of state by way of airplane, you'll most likely land at the Athens-Ben Epps Airport. If you find yourself with a spare hour or two, visit the Founders Memorial Garden, a real treat for any Athens visitor.
In Atlanta you'll find it becomes less about the Bulldogs, and more about the Yellow Jackets. The Georgia Tech University Yellow Jackets are a Division I program, fielding 17 varsity level teams competing within the Atlantic Coast Conference. With a slew of fans across the state, including Atlanta area suburbs like Morrow, Stone Mountain, and Hapeville, Georgia Tech sees plenty of support at home games.
The Georgia Tech football team plays home games at Bobby Dodd Stadium at Historic Grant Field, while the basketball teams play home games at Hank McCamish Pavilion. During the spring, head to Russ Chandler Stadium, home of the Yellow Jackets baseball team.
When you're planning a visit to the deep southeast of Georgia, head for Savannah and check out the Savannah State University Tigers and Lady Tigers. With 16 varsity level teams participating within the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, the SSU Tigers take their orange and blue colors into Ted A. Wright Stadium for home football games, while both the men's and women's basketball teams play at the Tiger Arena.
The Savannah State Tigers are a huge point of pride for locals in cities like Pooler, Richmond Hill, and Hinesville. On your visit, you'll have some time before the college football action kicks off, so pay a visit to Historic Savannah. In central Georgia find your way to Macon and check out the Mercer University Bears. Fans from Byron and Warner Robins make the short trip into Macon for Bears football games at the Moye Complex. During the spring, fans turn out in droves for Mercer Bears baseball games at Claude Smith Field.
Valdosta, a charming southern GA city, is home to Valdosta State University. Sports fans in the Valdosta area enjoy VSU Blazers football games at the Bazemore-Hyder Stadium, baseball games at the Billy Grant Field, and basketball games at PE Complex. Drive in from nearby Cairo or Thomasville.
