Florida Week: Monday Practice Report

Florida Week: Monday Practice Report

ATHENS — The Georgia football team returned to the practice field on Monday to begin preparations for Saturday's SEC showdown with Florida in Jacksonville.

The Bulldogs were greeted with football-like temperatures in the 50s with gusting winds as they worked out for approximately one hour.

"We had a very good practice," Georgia coach Mark Richt said. "The weather was a little cooler and the guys were very spirited. We're looking forward to this game, of course, but we'll prepare for it just like we do any other game."

The Bulldogs are 7-0 overall and 5-0 in the SEC, while the Gators are 5-2 and 3-2. Georgia is coming off a 23-20 win over Arkansas. The Gators were idle last week.

Quarterback Joe Tereshinski worked with the first unit on Monday as D.J. Shockley was sidelined with a sprained knee. Tereshinski has completed 13-of-23 passes for 207 yards and a touchdown this season as Shockley's backup.

Asked if the key to this week was keeping things as normal as possible, Tereshinski said, "That's the way I want it to be. I'm watching a little more film, but otherwise it's school and practice. I want to keep the routine the same."

Richt announced the captains for Saturday's game will be guard Max Jean-Gilles and Dennis Roland on offense, end Will Thompson on defense, and tailback/return specialist Tyson Browning on special teams.

Kickoff for Saturday's game is slated for 3:30 p.m. and will be televised by CBS.
