Monday's Football Practice Report

Aug. 27, 2012

ATHENS, Ga. --- The sixth-ranked Georgia football team finally reached game week on Monday, spending approximately two hours working on Saturday's season-opening opponent.

The Bulldogs will entertain Buffalo on Saturday at 12:21 p.m. at Sanford Stadium, and the game will be televised on the SEC Network.

"It feels good," cornerback Branden Smith said. "I wish the game was tomorrow, to tell you the truth, but we've got to keep getting ready. We've got to come out on Tuesday and pick it up and get better. We need to play fast on Saturday."

"It's nice knowing at the end of the week there will be a game," safety Connor Norman said. "You're not waking up Saturday for another practice; you're waking up Saturday to play. Getting to play, that's why we're all here. It will be nice to compete against other people, instead of having guys like Richard Samuel pounding on you. It means something now. It's exciting."

The captains for Saturday's game will be quarterback Aaron Murray, end Abry Jones, safety Shawn Williams and snapper Ty Frix.

Monday's injury report included receiver Taylor Bradberry (thumb sprain), nose Kwame Geathers (shoulder contusion), tight end Jay Rome (hamstring) and end/outside linebacker Cornelius Washington (cervical strain). Bradberry was the only one held out of Monday's practice. Geathers, Rome and Washington were limited.

Tickets to the home football games against Buffalo and Florida Atlantic (Sept. 15) are on sale to the general public and can be purchased online at or by calling the UGA Athletic Association ticket office at 1-877-542-1231.
