"The scout teams had two good days," head coach Mark Richt said. "We needed them to work hard for us and they have and I appreciate that. I think we've got a pretty good level of energy in practice, which is what we're hoping for. For the next two days, we'll be in shorts and have a couple of dress rehearsals. Thursday, of course, we'll be in the stadium with it as loud as we can get it."
Richt held his game-week press session earlier on Tuesday and discussed the significance of the Tennessee matchup and facing the Vols.
"This is a big game this week -- no doubt about it," Richt said. "There is so much riding on it for both teams. If we win, we continue to be one of the conference¹s top teams and if we lose, we lose control of the SEC East. They are not a good team, but a great football team. They recruit great players and coach them up while they are there."
Georgia will travel to Knoxville, Tenn., this Saturday to face No. 7-ranked Tennessee (3-1, 2-1) at Neyland Stadium. That contest will be televised nationally by CBS with kick-off slated for 3:30 p.m. ET.
