ORLANDO, Fla. --- Fifth-ranked Georgia continued preparations for its Capital One Bowl contest with No. 23 Nebraska by holding a two-hour practice Friday.

Georgia coach Mark Richt said the Bulldogs know they're going to face an excellent Nebraska rushing attack along with a talented quarterback in Taylor Martinez who tallied 973 yards on the ground while passing for 2,667 yards and 21 touchdowns too.  Richt said he is aiming for a strong start and a complete game from the Bulldogs against the Cornhuskers.

"We had good energy, everybody was locked in and ready to work today," Richt added. "I feel good about preparations so far, I really like how we prepared in Athens, then got a little break and so far so good here in Orlando. It's still a game of emotion and momentum, and hopefully we'll start out with the right type of emotion, but we have to play for 60 minutes."

"(Taylor) Martinez can take it the distance on any play, he's a very mobile quarterback, he does a great job, and we have to keep pressure on him," said All-American linebacker Jarvis Jones. "We've faced a couple athletic quarterbacks that are gifted with speed. He's explosive. We understand we have to execute our game plan and prepare to do our best when it's game time. The coaches have been doing a great job of putting us in situations to make plays this season. We know Nebraska is very capable of going the distance on some plays."

After practice, the team had a pair of afternoon activities planned. The Bulldogs visited SeaWorld, and they had the option of attending the Russell Athletic Bowl at Florida Citrus Bowl Stadium, site of the Capital One Bowl too. Friday's contest was between Virginia Tech and Rutgers.

The team's Saturday's schedule begins with another morning practice followed by a day at various Disney Parks including Magic Kingdom, Epcot, MGM Studios and Animal Kingdom.  Also, Bulldog offensive coordinator Mike Bobo, defensive coordinator Todd Grantham plus Jones and junior quarterback Aaron Murray are slated to attend a bowl press conference during the day.

The Bulldogs face the Cornhuskers on Jan. 1 at 1:08 p.m. in the Capital One Bowl. It will be televised by ABC.
