Saturday brings us our first and last look at this 2021 Georgia Football team. With G-Day comes a proving ground for newcomers, players battling for starting spots, and an opportunity to see growth in the veterans on the roster.
Join us as we live blog and discuss the game here in our GAMEDAY Open Thread. Dive into the conversation. Tune in for all live updates as the game progresses. The game will be streamed on SEC Network+.
Where Can I find SEC Network+?
So, if SEC Network+ isn’t the SEC Network channel or one of its alternates, then where do you find it? The answer is the ESPN App. However, it won’t be as simple as just downloading the app. You will have to log in with your TV provider to unlock the G-Day game.
