Athens, GA - The Georgia football team logged about two hours of practice on Monday afternoon as preparations continued for the AutoZone Liberty Bowl.

After a short special teams practice Monday morning, the Bulldogs worked on situations during the afternoon session.

“It was a good fundamentals day,” Georgia head coach Mark Richt said. “We treated it like a (regular-season) Tuesday with a lot of scout team work. We worked mostly on first-and-10 situations and finished up with some third-down work. We’ll work scout team only on Tuesday.”

Monday marked the seventh of eight days of bowl practice in Athens for the Bulldogs. They will have a total of 11 practice sessions, including a pair of two-a-day workouts. The on-campus practice schedule will conclude Tuesday morning before breaking for Christmas. The team will reconvene in Memphis, Tenn., for final preparations on Dec. 26.

Georgia (6-6) will battle 24th-ranked Central Florida (10-3) in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl on Dec. 31 at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET, and the game will be televised nationally by ESPN and carried on national radio on SIRIUS channel 120 and XM channel 140.

The Bulldogs will be making their 14th consecutive bowl appearance, and Georgia ranks as one of the top five bowl teams of all-time in wins and appearances. Georgia is 26-16-3 all-time in bowl games including 7-2 under Richt.
