Today marks the 117th Anniversary of the first football game for the University of Georgia. On January 30, 1892, Georgia played Mercer University at Herty Field on North Campus. Georgia would defeat Mercer 50-0 and would begin its winning tradition. Three weeks later, the team would head to Piedmont Park in Atlanta to take on Auburn and the Deep South's Oldest Rivalry was born.
