As reported earlier in the week, yesterday, on November 4th, the #1-ranked Georgia Bulldogs (University of Georgia) and the South Carolina Gamecocks (University of South Carolina) faced off for a highly anticipated SEC football matchup. For the game at Sanford Stadium in Athens, Georgia, the UGA Bulldogs came out ahead, winning 24-10 against the Gamecocks and continuing their undefeated streak this season. However, music lovers from around the country will enjoy reliving the game’s halftime performance, during which UGA’s Redcoat Marching Band honored the late and legendary iconic rock star and Georgia native Gregg Allman by performing a medley of  Allman Brothers Band classics, including “Ramblin’ Man”, “Whipping Post”, “Midnight Rider”, and “Black Hearted Woman”.

During the UGA home game, the school also honored the recipients of the Gregg Allman Scholarship—a product of Allman’s generosity toward UGA’s Hugh Hodgson School of Music. In 2015, the beloved rock icon established the fund in collaboration with the UGA Music Business Program, with the funds going toward students who are looking to make it in the music industry.
