Georgia fans who can’t get enough Bulldogs football usually go to Sanford Stadium. But this time, they might want to contemplate a different destination: Walmart.

A Walmart in Athens is showing replays of Georgia’s Rose Bowl victory against Oklahoma on the TV screens in its electronics section.

Lots and lots of screens. Eight in a row.

Alert Georgia student Emily Giambalvo, who writes for the student newspaper, spotted the sight and posted a photo on Twitter.

Just guessing that the department manager is a Bulldogs fan.

Georgia fans aren’t likely to get tired of reliving the January 1 victory against Oklahoma and Heisman-winning quarterback Baker Mayfield. The Bulldogs fought from behind to beat the Sooners 54-48 in double overtime, advancing to the final of the College Football Playoff.
