A Southern Football Tradition. October 12, 1929. After 27 years of playing football in hardscabble fields and old baseball parks, the University of Georgia Bulldogs finally have a permanent home. It’s called Sanford Stadium. Over the years it will become one of the largest and most historic stadiums in the country...the only place where you can go to play “between the hedges.” If you’re a fan of college football, if you like impressive architecture, then you’ll love “Sanford Stadium...A Southern Football Tradition”.
