Athens, GA - The Georgia Bulldogs held their second and final practice of the week Thursday, working out for 90 minutes in full pads.
The Bulldogs (4-3, 3-2 SEC), who have an open date this week, will have an early-morning lift on Friday, and then they will be free until Sunday, according to Georgia coach Mark Richt.
“It will be a good break for them with a complete day off on Saturday and then we’ll come back and go in full pads on Sunday,” said Richt. “We’ll finish the game plan and get going.”
Richt said he plans to watch some football and said it would be nice if the players watched some too but wouldn’t mind if they decided to go fishing instead.
“Whatever it takes to recharge the batteries, we’ve got enough film in case they don’t watch the game,” said Richt. “I like watching a game on television, you hear the names and learn the personnel better. You get a flavor of a lot of things, it’s a different look.”
Richt’s weekend plans include attending his son Jon’s game at Mars Hill as they play host to Lenoir-Rhyne. Jon Richt and Luis Cruz split time as the quarterback for the Lions who are 5-2 this year.
Georgia returns to action Saturday, Oct. 31 when it faces top-ranked
Florida in Jacksonville. Kickoff is slated for 3:30 p.m. ET, and CBS will televise the game live.
Richt said a victory over the Gators would be huge.
“Any time you are on national television and you can get a win, it’s good, and if you play the number one team and get a win, that would be big,” Richt added.
