Vanderbilt Week: Tuesday Practice Report

ATHENS - The No. 4-ranked Georgia Bulldogs (5-0, 3-0) practiced in full pads for approximately two and a half hours on Tuesday afternoon in Athens -- their lone full-contact session in preparation for this Saturday's game at Vanderbilt (4-2, 2-1) in Nashville, Tenn.

The workout was conducted under overcast skies and with temperatures in the low 70s.

"The weather was nice today," head coach Mark Richt said. "It was a very spirited workout, which may have been due to the cooler temperatures. Overall, the effort was very good and I was pleased with the results."

During the Bulldogs' Tuesday press session earlier in the afternoon Richt talked more about Saturday's matchup with Vanderbilt.

"A couple of things on Vanderbilt that I thought were interesting," Richt said.. "They¹ve got 20 different players on the team from Georgia, so they¹re going to be excited about us coming to town for sure. They are very good at what they do. They¹re still very much in the SEC race, they¹re very much in the race to become bowl eligible which they haven¹t done in a while, so I know they¹re excited about that. They¹ve got a heck of a good football team, and historically we haven¹t played very well at Vanderbilt, so hopefully we can turn that around.²

Georgia faces the Commodores on national television this Saturday at 7:15 p.m. ET. The contest will be televised by ESPN 2.
