Athens, GA - The Georgia Bulldogs (3-4, 2-3 SEC) conducted a
two-and-a-half-hour practice in full pads on Tuesday, their most physical
workout in preparation for this Saturday's matchup with Kentucky (4-3, 1-3 SEC) in Lexington.
"I hope it was good enough," head coach Mark Richt said. "I'm not sure it was. We'll find out on Saturday night."
Richt also talked about Saturday's game at length during the Bulldogs'
weekly press conference earlier in the afternoon.
³It¹s a great challenge for us," Richt said. "We¹re excited and thankful for the last couple of weeks and the job our guys have done. They have a really tremendous challenge going to Kentucky. Kentucky has beaten us two out of the last four times. I¹m sure that they¹ve gained a lot of momentum with that great victory over South Carolina, a top-10 team. Coach Phillips is really doing a super job.²
Richt commented on the number of Peach State products who will be on the opposing sideline on Saturday evening.
"They have 21 kids from Georgia," Richt said. "That, I¹m sure, will be a lot of incentive for a lot of those kids. Of course Kentucky is their No. 1
state for recruiting, but Georgia is No. 2 for them. There are a lot of guys
that are on that team and a lot of guys who are playing well for them.²
Kickoff in Lexington is set for 7:30 p.m. ET, and the game will be televised regionally by CSS and also available on espn3.com.
