The Bulldogs are 3-0 after defeating Georgia Southern, Central Michigan and South Carolina. On Saturday, the Bulldogs will visit Arizona State, which sports a 2-1 record.
As per their normal Monday routine, the Bulldogs did conditioning for the first part and ended with special teams work.
³We have a great opportunity this week because we¹re playing a great team on national television,² Georgia coach Mark Richt said. ³We have to do things the right way to have a chance to win. Tonight, we worked on introducing the kicking plan and working out any soreness the guys might have. We need a good week of preparation, and we got off to a good start tonight.²
Richt announced the captains for this week¹s game will be tailback Knowshon Moreno and tackle Clint Boling on offense, linebacker Rennie Curran on defense, and punter Brian Mimbs on special teams.
Earlier Monday, the league office announced that Curran has been named the Southeastern Conference Defensive Player of the Week. Curran had six tackles and added a sack and two quarterback pressures against the Gamecocks. Curran highlighted his performance by forcing a fumble late in the fourth quarter when he drilled South Carolina¹s Mike Davis on the Georgia 1-yard line. Georgia teammate Asher Allen recovered the fumble in the end zone to help clinch the win.
