SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Fans have been in and out of the Savannah International Airport all day flying out to Pasadena to see the Georgia Bulldogs take on the Oklahoma Sooners.

Fans Freddy and Becky Long say they knew they were going to fly to California to support their team the day they won the SEC championship. Not only are these fans season ticket holders, but they say it was only right that they go support their team because they are both alumni of UGA.

"We're very excited about going out," said Freddy Long. "This may be a once in a lifetime event for us to see the Georgia Bulldogs play in the rose bowl so we're excited about getting out there and not only seeing the dogs play, but also the parade."

The Longs say they knew they were going to fly to California to support their team the day they won the SEC championship.

"We're very excited about going out," Long said. "This may be a once in a lifetime event for us to see the Georgia Bulldogs play in the rose bowl so we're excited about getting out there and not only seeing the dogs play, but also the parade."

Not only are these fans season ticket holders, but they say it was only right that they go support their team because they are both alumni of UGA.

Another fan, David Elliott, has been a season ticket holder since 1986! He says he has seen his team go to the sugar bowl as well as lose a few championships and he's been there for them all along the way.

"It's been a long time," Elliott said. "So I'm excited about the opportunity to go to the Rose Bowl this year."

As for the Mayor of Port Wentworth, let's just say he's a die-hard Georgia fan as well.

"We ain't worried about city government today," said Glenn Jones, Mayor of Port Wentworth. "We worried about going out to Pasadena and having a good time and watching the GA Bulldogs bring it back to Georgia and go to Atlanta next weekend."
