Tech Week: Monday Practice Report

ATHENS - The Georgia football team began preparations for Saturday's game with instate rival Georgia Tech by practicing indoors at the Ramsey Center for approximately 90 minutes on Monday.

Heavy rains in Athens around 3 p.m. forced the Bulldogs to move their practice session indoors. However, Georgia was able to complete most of its standard Monday helmets-and-shorts routine, practicing all phases of the game.

The Bulldogs are ranked 13th this week after improving to 8-2 with last week's win over Kentucky. With that victory, Georgia clinched a berth in the SEC Championship Game next week. Georgia Tech is 20th at 7-3 following its win over then-No. 3 Miami.

"Georgia Tech has a very good football team, and their win at Miami was impressive," Georgia coach Mark Richt said. "We're going to have a great challenge against them. They are very physical and they will get after you. It should be one heck of a game."

Richt announced the captains for Saturday's game will be offensive tackle Dennis Roland, defensive end Will Thompson, defensive tackle Kedric Golston and receiver/kick returner Bryan McClendon.

Richt also announced that reserve defensive back Antonio Sims has been suspended for Saturday's game because of a violation of team rules.

Saturday¹s game in Atlanta will kick off at 8 p.m. and will be televised by ABC.
