UGA football fan travels from Scotland for first Georgia Bulldogs game

Standing in section 103 of Sanford Stadium Saturday for Georgia football’s game against Kent State will be a man wearing a shirt that says ‘Cheerio & Go Dawgs.’

It will be Chris Biggs’ first Bulldogs game after traveling some 4,500 miles from Scotland to Atlanta and then up the road to Athens.

The Edinburgh resident arrived in the United States for the first time late Wednesday.

“It’s beautiful and such an amazing city,” Biggs said of Athens. “I didn’t expect it to be as beautiful as it is. Everyone has been so generous and welcoming, and Southern hospitality is really a thing. I’ve really been blown away.”

Biggs, known as British Bulldawg on Twitter, gained a notable following on the platform in recent years as he’s shared his devotion for Georgia football.
