Athens, GA - The Georgia Bulldogs conducted their second straight
full-pads practice of the week on Tuesday, working out for approximately two and a half hours to prepare for this Saturday's date with Tennessee in Sanford Stadium.
"Today was a little bit more of a grind (than yesterday), but I thought they fought through it well," head coach Mark Richt said.
Richt and various Bulldogs players took part in the team's weekly press
conference earlier in the day on Tuesday, where they talked about the
importance of Saturday's game. The Bulldogs (1-4, 0-3 SEC) and the
Volunteers (2-3, 0-2 SEC), traditionally two of the SEC's premier teams,
both are in search of their first conference win of the 2010 campaign.
³We have two teams in very similar situations," Richt said. "Both are coming off heartbreaking losses. Both are looking for a Southeastern Conference victory. Both are teams that have tremendous fan bases and tremendous tradition and history of playing winning football so we are both, I would say, pretty desperate for a victory right now.
³I would think it¹s going to be a highly-emotional game, a highly-charged
game with two teams really fighting like mad for a victory and fighting like mad for the ability to show people that we can play football," Richt
continued. "It ought to be a good one."
Kickoff is set for 12:21 p.m. ET, and the game will be televised nationally
by the SEC Network.
