Photo shows SEC rivalry in Afghanistan

AFGHANISTAN (WALB) -

It's been said that Southeastern Conference NCAA football fans are just a little bit more fanatical than most, and showing that are a couple of U.S. military members overseas sharing an SEC rivalry while serving our country.

Meet Air Force Staff Sergeant Seth Darling and Army Specialist Dustin Tucker.

Staff Sgt. Darling and Spc. Tucker paused for this photo to show their support for the University of Georgia and the University of South Carolina.

The two have most recently been in Afghanistan, where they took the photo in front of a helicopter.

Tucker, from Albany, GA is a self-proclaimed UGA fan and Darling cheers for the Gamecocks.

There was no immediate word on whether the two will be able to catch the game, set for Saturday at 4:30 p.m. (ET) in Athens, GA.
