Dixson to start against Arkansas

ATHENS - Junior Dale Dixson has earned the starting job beside Ray Gant at defensive tackle, Richt said Thursday as the Bulldogs prepared for their final practice of the week.

"Dale's had a good week of practice," Richt said.

Dale Dixson has just seven career tackles. Three of those came this year. Freshman Jeff Owens narrowly missed earning the job and will get a lot of playing time, Richt said. Senior Darrius Swain and junior Marquis Elmore also will be in the rotation.
