When the Georgia Bulldogs face the Arkansas State Red Wolves, there is a very good chance that Sanford Stadium is filled with fans wearing pink.
Georgia is going to honor Wendy Anderson, the wife of Arkansas State coach Blake Anderson. She passed away after a long battle with cancer.
Usually, the crowd at Sanford Stadium is ready to give their opponents a headache from start to finish. That won’t be the case on Saturday, and this kind gesture from the Bulldogs caught the attention of ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt.
Van Pelt devoted time on his show to talk about Georgia’s upcoming game. He’s moved by the program’s “Wear Pink For Wendy” campaign that is taking place this weekend.
“Down in Athens, the answer to the question ‘Who’s that coming down the track?’ is of course a mean machine in red and black. Well, that machine has a heart and a soul and they’re huge.”

Arkansas State fell short in its season opener against SMU, but Anderson led the team to a victory over UNLV in his return to coaching.
There’s no denying that Georgia fans are hoping for a win in Week 3. Nonetheless, it’s touching to see them support their opponent during such a difficult time.
