The Bulldogs (2-1, 1-0 SEC) went face to face, out in the rain Wednesday, hanging tough and staying hungry for two hours in full pads. Georgia aims to show it has the skills to survive the early season gauntlet of top 10 foes, three in its four games, and shoot straight to the top of the SEC standings. The Tigers (4-0, 1-0 SEC) have not been stalking their prey but mauling them early, outscoring their opponents 62-3 in the first quarter this season and 173-88 overall.
“We had a good practice and got a lot of work in that we needed outside and finished with scout team work inside,” Georgia coach Mark Richt said.
The Bulldogs have practiced three consecutive days in full pads, and Richt said it was mainly to keep everybody sharp and operating under the right tempo.
“The goal was not to splatter everybody, it was to keep everybody’s mind right, and I think we came through it well,” Richt added.
When asked about the possibility of a “Red Out” Saturday at Sanford Stadium, he said he would be all for it.
“It would be a sign of unity from the Bulldog Nation, and we’ll have our red on,” Richt said. “It will add energy to the day. I’d like to see that.”
Kickoff is schedule for 3:30 p.m. ET Saturday, and the game will be televised by CBS. Also ESPN College GameDay will broadcast from Athens starting at 9 a.m.
