If you need any more of a reason to be hyped up about Saturday’s Georgia-Kentucky game, then check out this trailer voiced by Zac Brown.

Going into the year, we all knew that the Georgia versus Kentucky game was going to be a big one. We just didn’t know how big. Coming into the week, the Bulldogs are ranked No. 1 in the nation. And the Wildcats are sitting at No. 11, just outside the top 10. Both teams are currently undefeated at 6-0 just ahead of the SEC East showdown. The winner of this game will control their own destiny in the SEC for the rest of the season.

As you can imagine, it won’t take much to get the fans rocking at Sanford Stadium in Athens tomorrow afternoon. Nearly everyone in the nation is ready to watch the two SEC heavyweights go at it. And Zac Brown is making sure to get college football fans everywhere excited for the matchup. The country star and Georgia native voiced a new game trailer that will give you goosebumps.

“Down here, football is more than a sport. It’s a culture, a feeling,” Brown says while his song “GA Clay” plays in the background. “That crisp, cool breeze that sweeps the town on a Saturday morning in October. It’s the talk of the town. Bold print on the front page. It’s on the radio, on t-shirts, and on street signs. Down here, we bleed the red and black. And when you’re raised on that Georgia clay, you’re a dawg for life.”

Georgia Coach Compliments Kentucky Coach Ahead of Zac Brown Trailer

The Georgia Bulldogs are in their sixth year under head coach Kirby Smart. And up to this date, Smart has an overall record of 58-14, with a 3-9 record in the SEC. But he knows he has a tough challenge coming up this weekend. He talked about just that during a press conference on Monday.

“I think when you look at what Coach Stoops has been able to do, it’s pretty remarkable,” he said. “First off, he’s a really good football coach. I’ve known him a long time. Recruited against him. We went head-to-head on a lot of recruits back when he was Florida State’s defensive coordinator and I was at Alabama.”

However, Kirby says his team wouldn’t be there if they didn’t want to play under the bright lights.

“The challenge ahead is for us. I think our kids embrace that. It seems like each week, the last three, four, five weeks, we’ve had big games and we have another opportunity. That’s why you come to the SEC. To play in big games.”

The game between Georgia and Kentucky will be televised on CBS and will kickoff at 3:30 p.m.
