³We¹re getting ready to get our last little preparations in for this ballgame,² Richt said. ³So far, we¹ve practiced well, and I¹m excited about getting on to Tuscaloosa.²
³I think there will be an awful lot of excitement there in that stadium knowing it will be a night game, knowing that the Alabama fan¹s are excited about the start of their season and knowing that Game Day is there,² Richt added.
When asked about the team¹s travel squad for the weekend, Richt indicated that senior Brandon Coutu would be the team¹s backup punter in addition to his normal kicking duties. Richt also noted that freshman offensive tackle Justin Anderson would make the trip.
