On Friday night most of the team attended the Peach Bowl at the Georgia Dome, just a few blocks from team headquarters at the Omni Hotel.
"I think going to the game last night was good, just to see it from a different prospective and hopefully get excited about our game coming up. Any time you look at a bowl game you can usually see one team that seems to be a little more excited than the other team or maybe being more prepared. I think we understand that momentum is such a crucial part of it," Richt said.
The Sugar Bowl will be televised live on ABC at 8:37 p.m. ET on Jan. 2.
