ATLANTA, Ga. (WCTV) -- How far would you go to support your team?

For Clark Hurst, he took that question literally, as he made the cross-country trek from Athens, Georgia to Pasadena, California mostly by scooter to see his Bulldogs take on the Oklahoma Sooners in this year's Rose Bowl.

"I probably spent more money on coffee than I did on gasoline," Hurst recalls.

His journey began on December 21. He traveled 30 miles an hour, wearing only UGA clothing for the entire trip.

While Hurst made it to Pasadena, the scooter did not.

"The scooter is at a truck stop off I-10 somewhere between El Paso and Tuscon," he said. Hurst said he gave it a desert burial.

Hurst ultimately hitchhiked to Tuscon and took a plane to Pasadena, arriving the night before the game.

He had planned to paint his face for the game, but TSA agents took his paint at the airport.
