Kentucky Week: Monday Practice Reports

ATHENS ­- The Georgia Bulldogs began preparations for their final home and Southeastern Conference game with a workout on Monday at the Woodruff Practice Fields.

The Bulldogs held meetings and lifted weights before a short practice under the lights on a chilly Monday evening.

The eighth-ranked Bulldogs currently are atop the SEC East standings with an 8-2 overall record and a 5-2 mark in the conference. No. 22 Kentucky is 7-3 and 3-3, including an overtime win against then-No. 1 LSU.

³We have all the respect in the world for Kentucky,² Georgia coach Mark Richt said. ³We know that we will need an excellent week of practice to be ready for them. Teams win games by paying the price during the week, and that¹s what we¹ve got to do.²
