Georgia football flag flies in locker room

By Mike Reiss

FOXBOROUGH, Mass., -- How does a University of Georgia car flag make its way on the back of a chair in the Patriots' locker room?

A Georgia flag was flying in the Patriots' locker room.

That was the question posed to tight end Benjamin Watson, a Georgia alum, on Thursday.

It turns out Watson was on the winning end of a friendly game with Georgia Tech alums Gary Guyton (linebacker) and Darryl Richard (practice squad defensive lineman) after Georgia beat Georgia Tech, 30-24, on Nov. 28. 

"Georgia pulled the win out, so they had to wear some Georgia apparel," Watson said. "A little bragging rights for the week."
