Georgia mascot Uga was a College GameDay star before the Kentucky game
Forget Jeff Foxworthy – the real featured guest on ESPN GameDay College aired on saturday was uga, Bulldog mascot live from Georgia.
The college football pre-game show drew many famous guest selectors to air to make their predictions for the Saturday lineups. But whenever a dog is involved, the show is infinitely better, and Uga’s appearance on Saturday in front of No.1 Georgia taking on No.11 Kentucky (3:30 p.m. ET, CBS) was no exception.
As Lee Corso recited all the reasons he picked the Bulldogs to beat the Wildcats in Week 7’s biggest game – we predicted Georgia would win too – there was Uga, sitting on the desk as the good boy he is, looking proud and cute as he already is.
Seriously, check out this dog:

Speaking to Uga, Corso said before putting on the Georgia mascot costume head:
“Listen, Georgia is the nation’s No.1 team, which makes you the nation’s No.1 mascot. Uga, you and I picked Georgia to win the SEC title. Uga, you and I picked Georgia to win the national championship. Uga and I picked Kentucky to win the basketball tournament, but it’s not basketball, honey.
Whether or not Georgia beat Kentucky and stay atop the college football standings, Uga’s appearance on GameDay was definitely a highlight on Saturday.
