The late Allman Brothers Band frontman will be honored for his career musical achievements and his support of the University’s music-education programs.

In 2015, Allman partnered with the University of Georgia’s Music Business Program to establish a scholarship fund for students attending the institution’s respected Hugh Hodgson School of Music. The halftime tribute will feature the University of Georgia Redcoat Marching Band performing three of Allman’s classic songs.  Recipients of the Gregg Allman Scholarship also will be recognized during the festivities.

The football game, which will be held at the university’s Sanford Stadium in Athens, Georgia, will air live on CBS, with kickoff scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET; check your local TV listings.

Allman died in May of liver cancer at age 69. His final studio album, Southern Blood, was released in September.
