On September 27, 2008, #8 Alabama took on #3 Georgia at Sanford Stadium in Athens. With both teams as SEC & National Championship hopefuls, the stakes were high. Bulldog players dressed out in their black uniforms for only the third time in school history, and fans came dressed in all black for a ‘blackout’ — in response, Crimson Tide fans filled their tiny visitor section in white. One of Bama’s biggest plays of the game was the 31-yard pass from John Parker Wilson (#14) to Julio Jones (#8) to set the Tide up for their second TD. Bama gave Georgia their own ‘blackout,’ with a beating of 41-30. The accompanying poem, written by former Alabama Defensive End, Todd Bates evokes the emotions of the game.
