Tech Week: Monday Practice Report

Posted Nov 19, 2007

ATHENS - The sixth-ranked Georgia football team practiced for 30 minutes after working out, conditioning and attending meetings on Monday afternoon in preparation for its showdown with in-state rival Georgia Tech.

The Bulldogs (9-2, 6-2) clinched at least a share of the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division title after knocking off Kentucky 24-13 on Nov. 17. The Yellow Jackets are 7-4, 4-4 and are coming off a 27-25 win over North Carolina. Both teams square off in their 100th meeting on ABC in Atlanta at 3:30 p.m. EDT Saturday.

³I do think (the Yellow Jackets) are getting better and better each year,² said head coach Mark Richt. ³They are an extremely well-coached bunch. When you watch teams play and study them, you notice how fast and hard they play, and Georgia Tech plays extremely hard.²

On Monday, sophomore defensive lineman Geno Atkins was named the SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week and freshman linebacker Rennie Curran was named the SEC Freshman of the Week for their performances against the Wildcats. The awards were the ninth and 10th for Georgia this season.

In addition, Richt named junior fullback Brannan Southerland, junior punter Brian Mimbs, Atkins and Curran captains for the Georgia Tech game, which is Georgia¹s final regular season game.
