In fact, it was McDowell that called UGA asking to attend the game.
"Georgia did not really invite me. I am not sure if they were going to or not, but I called them asking if I could get tickets, and they said yes. So I went and I am glad I did."
UGA really has captured McDowell's interest.
"I loved the atmosphere there and the way the fans get into the game. Everyone was into it, making noise, and it was loud.
"I like how the team plays too. Every time I would look up, I would see four or five red jerseys around the ball. They have 11 guys on defense that like to hit and I like to hit, so I liked that.
"I also like that it is close to home. It would be easy for my mom to get back and forth to games and stuff."
