Kentucky Week: Thursday Practice Report

ATHENS - The No. 14-ranked Georgia Bulldogs (7-2, 5-2 SEC) put the finishing touch on their preparations for Saturday's game against the Kentucky Wildcats (3-6, 2-4) on Thursday afternoon. Under clear skies and much cooler temperatures than the team has been used to this season, the Bulldogs ran through plays for about two hours in shorts.

Following the practice, Georgia head coach Mark Richt expressed how much it would mean to the team to have the stands full when the seniors were honored before the game on Saturday.

"This is the last opportunity to see our seniors play in Sanford Stadium and if fans could possibly get to the game early to see them honored with their parents at midfield, it would mean a lot to that group and to the team as a whole," Richt said.

While the Dog Walk begins at 10:45 a.m., the ceremony for the seniors is scheduled to begin at 12:15 p.m. at Sanford Stadium's midfield.

Although junior Tra Battle is scheduled to be out of action for the Bulldogs and junior Tony Taylor is listed as doubtful because of injuries, Richt said the team is prepared for their second-to-last regular season matchup. With a win over the Wildcats, Georgia would be headed to the SEC Championship in Atlanta on Dec. 3 to represent the SEC's Eastern Division.

"The guys are ready to go and for kick-off to hurry up and arrive on Saturday," Richt said.

Saturday's contest between the Bulldogs and the Wildcats will be televised regionally by Jefferson Pilot with kick-off slated for 12:33 p.m.
