LSU Week: Wednesday Practice Report

ATHENS - Georgia held a spirited two-hour workout Wednesday as they continue their preparation for the upcoming clash with fourth-ranked LSU.

The Bulldogs (3-1, 2-0 SEC) are looking to remain undefeated in league play while the Tigers (4-0, 2-0 SEC) have yet to taste defeat this season.

"This was the best Wednesday we've had all year, I can safely say that," said Georgia coach Mark Richt. "I was pleased with the effort, the enthusiasm. Everyone was competing and having fun. They seemed to enjoy it for a change and maybe found out that you can get the work done and enjoy it."

Richt said the crisp air and cool temperatures likely helped the energy level, as did the excitement of facing LSU come Saturday.

"Every game in the SEC there's a lot at stake, and this one in particular," said Richt. "We're getting ready to play a highly ranked opponent that we know has tremendous athletes and great coaches. It's going to be a challenge, and if you're a true competitor, it will excite you."

During Richt's tenure, the Bulldogs are 20-5 against teams from the SEC West. Georgia already has tallied a 52-41 road win over Arkansas earlier this month. Meanwhile, LSU hasn't won in Athens since 1987. The Georgia-LSU series is tied at 6-all in games played in Athens. Overall, LSU leads the series 14-12-1 and Georgia has won the past three meetings.

Richt provided an update on a couple of Bulldog defensive backs when asked about their status for the remainder of the week including Saturday. He said sophomore Brandon Boykin was ill and should return to practice Thursday. Junior Vance Cuff did practice Wednesday and is getting close to 100 percent. Both are probable to play Saturday, according to Richt. Recommended Stories
