"We have a tremendous amount of respect for Florida," Georgia coach Mark Richt said. "They have won some big games this year and they have made a lot of plays. We need a great week of practice to prepare for this game. We got off to a good start today."
On Monday, quarterback Matthew Stafford was named the SEC Freshman of the Week. Stafford completed 20-of-32 passes for 267 yards and two touchdowns in Georgia's 27-24 win against Mississippi State. He set career highs in attempts, completions, yards and touchdown passes. He completed passes to nine different Bulldog receivers. For the season, Stafford is 67-for-125 for 849 yards and three touchdowns. Stafford is the second Bulldog signal-caller to earn this league honor this season. Last month, Joe Cox was recognized for his performance in the comeback win against Colorado.
