Bulldogs continue preparations for Florida
ATHENS, Ga. – The No. 9-ranked Georgia football team returned to the Woodruff Practice Fields on Monday with a 90-minute workout in shells.
The Bulldogs (6-1, 4-1 SEC) will continue conference play this week as they travel to Jacksonville to take on Florida (3-3, 2-3 SEC). The game will kick off at 3:30 p.m. and will be televised by CBS.
Georgia did not play on Saturday, but used three days last week to begin installing the game plan for the Gators.
“I saw a lot of energy tonight, I saw a lot of good coaching and I saw guys paying the price trying to get better,” Georgia coach Mark Richt said. “The guys were working hard on every snap and you could tell how focused they were. The scouts gave us a good effort and good looks. We’ve got to continue to focus on getting better at what we do at every practice.”
Richt said the captains for Saturday’s game will be quarterback Hutson Mason and center David Andrews on offense, defensive back Damian Swann on defense, and kicker Marshall Morgan on special teams.
