It’s not every year that your school plays for a prestigious national championship.

This season, it’s Georgia and Alabama facing off in the culmination of the College Football Playoff at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta on Monday. And the Bulldogs will have an opportunity to win their first national title since 1980.

According to Brandon Sudge, a UGA student, the school has sent an email to faculty stating that it’s “not commonplace” for classes to be cancelled Monday and Tuesday for the national championship game. However, they were asked to be flexible on attendance and assignments so students can “enjoy the festivities.”

There will certainly be quite the celebration in Athens if the Bulldogs take down their SEC rival, the Crimson Tide, to capture the national championship.

Alabama has the experience advantage, playing for the national title for the sixth time in the past nine seasons. However, Georgia doesn’t have to travel outside the state, meaning there will certainly be a large contingent of Bulldogs fans in attendance.

The Bulldogs and Crimson Tide will kick off at 8 p.m. ET on Monday on ESPN.
