Minor injuries will force several of the team's players, including three of the spring's most impressive receivers, to miss the game. Freshman Tavarres King developed an infection in his knee this week that has him walking on crutches and taking antibiotics.
"It did swell up to the point where we had to pump the antibiotics into him," head coach Mark Richt said. "It could be just a couple more days, but he won't be able to go (today). I'm sure a lot of people wanted to see him."
Head athletic trainer Ron Courson "thought it was more of just a (bruise) than any kind of separation or anything like that," Richt said.
Georgia planned to play 10-minute quarters but changed it to eight-minute quarters due to concerns about depth.
