ATHENS-----The Georgia football team continued preparations for Saturday's home game against Georgia Southern with a two-hour workout at the Woodruff Practice Fields Tuesday. It was the second straight day the Bulldogs practiced in full pads.
"It was a good day," head coach Mark Richt said. "I thought the scout team so far is really giving good effort trying to give us the best look we can get. It's going to be tough to get it just right."
Earlier in the day, Richt led the Bulldogs' weekly press conference and discussed the matchup with Georgia Southern and its triple-option attack.
"They're just a very good football team - one that causes all kinds of problems for us, especially defensively to try to defend their running game and their offensive team," Richt said. "They're just very good at what they do.
"They're used to winning, and I've been saying it all along: when you play teams that are used to winning, they are very difficult to beat. They show up with a great plan, they have tremendous habits, and they're used to winning."
This will be the fifth all-time meeting between Georgia and Georgia Southern, with the Bulldogs winning all four previous games. The teams have meet every four years since the 2000 season.
There were no new players added to Tuesday's injury report.
Kickoff for Saturday's game is 1:30 p.m., and the contest will be televised by WSB-TV.
