Georgia Grocery Store Removes Irish Spring Soap Before Notre Dame Game

Georgia and Notre Dame players line up for a snap in 2017. They will have their rematch in College Football Week 4.

One Georgia grocery store is extra ready for the third-ranked Bulldogs' Saturday night showdown against No. 7 Notre Dame.

Dill's Food City, which has locations in Lavonia and Royston, has removed all bars of Irish Spring soap from its shelves this week, according to several social media posts.

The supermarket says the bars are "temporarily out of stock" but it is pretty clear they have just been shelved briefly due to the impending matchup with the Fighting Irish.

This week's game is a pivotal one for a pair of programs with recent College Football Playoff appearances.

Notre Dame made it last year after a 12-0 regular season, while Georgia qualified for the playoff in 2017, thanks in part to an early season road win over the Irish.

All-time, the Bulldogs have won both games against ND. Prior to 2017, the only time they had met was in the Sugar Bowl following the 1980 season. Georgia won that meeting 17-10 en route to its last national title.

Georgia and Notre Dame will kick off at 8 p.m. ET Saturday on CBS.
