ATHENS ­ The Georgia football team returned to the Woodruff Practice Fields on Friday, working out for approximately two hours in preparation for the upcoming Allstate Sugar Bowl.

The Bulldogs (10-2) practiced under the lights on a chilly evening in shoulder pads and helmets. Georgia is scheduled to practice again on Saturday and then Monday through Friday as it prepares for its Jan. 1 meeting with 12-0 Hawaii. All other practices will take place in New Orleans.

Before practice on Friday, Georgia coach Mark Richt met with the media and was asked about the importance of resuming practice.

³I told the staff that I expected them by today, when we meet with our players for the first time in a while, to have a good bit of that game plan ready to implement and not waste a day,² Richt said. ³We have a lot of respect for this team, and we feel like it is going to take everything we have to win it.²

Tailback Thomas Brown, one of the Bulldogs going through graduation exercises on Saturday, said this game is important to the team.

³We want to finish out on top and be the senior class that propelled Georgia to a top-five caliber team,² Brown said. ³If we win this game, the worst we would be ranked next season in my opinion is No. 3.²

The Allstate Sugar Bowl will take place Jan. 1, 2008, in New Orleans. Kickoff is slated for 8:30 p.m. ET and the game will be televised by Fox.
