The Georgia Bulldogs could come under fire from the Southeast Conference for potential violation of COVID-19 rules.
Many photos of cheering Georgia fans went viral during their big SEC battle against the rival Auburn Tigers on Saturday night at Sanford Stadium. Many of the fans were packed together and not wearing masks.
The SEC released guidelines in August for their schools to enforce.
One of the guidelines read: “Face coverings (over the nose and mouth) shall be required as a condition of all guest ingress, egress, and movement throughout the stadium, as well as any time guests are unable to maintain the recommended physical distance from others who are not in their same household.”
There was some speculation on social media that Georgia let in more than 20-25 percent fans into the stadium, the range the school said it would permit in August.
It looks like the big crowd has a good chance go home happy. The No. 4 Bulldogs jumped out to a 24-3 halftime lead over the No. 7 Tigers.
