Fresh off of a National Championship appearance, the UGA football program scored big on National Signing Day by landing the nation’s top-ranked recruiting class.

Now, Georgia football coach Kirby Smart is hoping that momentum carries over to the annual G-Day game.

On Friday, Smart was speaking to the media when he urged Bulldogs fans to show up in a big way to pack Sanford Stadium in Athens for the spring game.

“We need our fan base, who has done everything we’ve asked them to do, to turn out April 21st at 4 o’clock and be out there for G-Day in what we expect to be another sellout, packed opportunity to go out and represent University of Georgia, and show these kids in recruiting that it does matter and it is special here,” Smart said, via Jason Butt of The Telegraph.

Last year, 66,133 fans showed up for the spring game.

This year’s G-Day festivities will take place Saturday, April 21 at 4:00 p.m. ET.

Considering the run of success the Bulldogs are having, it wouldn’t be too much of a surprise to see Dawg Nation packing the stadium to catch a glimpse of the on-field product for what they hope will be another run to the College Football Playoff.
