Bulldogs continue preparations for Troy
ATHENS, Ga. – The 13th-ranked Georgia Bulldogs completed a two-hour workout Wednesday.
Georgia coach Mark Richt said the Bulldogs would use Thursday’s session to tie everything together that the team has been working on this week.
“Overall, we had a nice practice, and I liked the energy level,” Richt said. “We did some situation work, some third downs and plays in the red zone. The team was in good spirits and got better today.”
Georgia (1-1) returns to action Saturday when it plays host to Troy (0-3) at Sanford Stadium. The game will be available on the SEC Network with kickoff slated for 12:01 p.m.
With the early kickoff Saturday, Richt said the team would adjust its pregame routine starting Friday.
“We’ll have a 10 p.m. bed check on Friday and get them up early on Saturday, and we won’t have as much time for meetings on Saturday compared to a 3:30 kickoff or night game,” Richt said. “We’ll get everything in; we just will make a few adjustments.”
Richt was asked about how the team was doing after last week’s result in South Carolina, and he said he sees a team that is ready to rebound.
“Everybody is back to work and not feeling sorry for themselves. I see guys that are moving on. It’s hard to do but you got to do it, and we have,” Richt added.
Under Richt, the Bulldogs are 53-10 in non-conference games including 1-0 this season. Georgia opened the year with a 45-21 win over 16th-ranked Clemson.
