1. UGA vs. Idaho State
The University of Georgia Bulldogs face the Idaho State University Bengals during this Saturday's matchup between the hedges. The game is the third non-conference battle this season for the Dawgs, they are 1-1 in non-SEC play so far. It should shape up to be a special teams showdown as both teams have star players. ISU's star, Tavoy Moore will be returning punts from UGA's Drew Butler. Butler is the Ray Guy award recipient as well as the only unanimously elected NCAA All-American for the school in over ten years. Moore, a junior, is outrageously fast. He clocked a tiny 4.58 seconds during a 40 yard dash and was named National Punt and Kickoff Returner for the FCS. The good news: the Bengals are 0-6 in the Big Sky and only 1-7 overall. Let's Go DAWGS!

2. Live Music
Jam out to some live tunes this weekend in Athens. The Athens-Clarke County Library is hosting Green Flag during their Live! At The Library series on Sunday. Green Flag is a local band known for it's traditional Celtic jigs and reels. Bluegrass fans will love BlueBilly Grit at Terrapin Brewery this Friday. The brewery is in full swing for fall with seasonal offerings like the Moo-Hoo and Pumpkinfest brews. Rye Bar showcases 3 Foot Swagger and E Company on Friday night. Go for FREE at 10:30. Expect spacey jazz and high-energy rock.

3. Live Performances
Every night this weekend the city will offer amazing performances by local artists. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee will be performed by a UGA Theatre Group. This hit musical pokes fun at adolescent, high-school life. If you love Glee this show is for you! The Athens Creative Theatre will be remaking the classic musical Annie at the Morton Theatre. Sing along with spunky Annie, bitter Ms. Hannigan, and billionaire Daddy Warbucks.

4. Outdoorsy Stuff & THE PHOTO CONTEST!!!
Learn how to manage your own garden at the State Botanical Gardens this Friday during the "Where Did My Plants Go?" lecture. You could also head over to Bishop Park for the weekly Athens Farmers Market. Both would be great opportunities to snap some Fall pictures for our Photo Contest "FALL In Love With Athens". I'm just saying, there will probably be some cool photo ops for brightly colored local produce and Autumn leaves. Check out the complete contest rules at the contest page. We would love to see your take on the season!!
