Big numbers of Bulldogs fans make Rose Bowl trip

- Walking around just about any popular spot in Los Angeles before the Rose Bowl, you're guaranteed to see plenty of red and black.

"It's like a once in a lifetime trip, it doesn't happen every day," said Donna Glass from Griffin.

A quick stroll down the Hollywood Walk of Fame turned up far more Georgia fans than Oklahoma supporters in advance of the Rose Bowl on New Year's Day. One fan estimated "20-to-1" Dawgs over Sooners; others guessed it was more like 5-to-1.

"If you look around, all you see is Dawg fans," said Keith Powers from Albany. "We're painting the city red!"

Georgia fans noted their planes out to Los Angeles were complete with Bulldog cheers and high fives for fellow fans. That continued, whether it was walking around the Walk of Fame or checking out the famous Santa Monica Pier.

"It's a lot like Athens, you see it everywhere," said Tate Pearson from Fayetteville.

The UGA faithful hope their dominance on the streets translates to the stands at the Rose Bowl, which could in turn help propel the Dawgs to a spot in the national title game. That contest is in Atlanta, where there would likely be another strong showing for those wearing red and black.
