Florida Week: Sunday Practice Report

ATHENS - Georgia broke its usual routine and practiced for an hour under the lights at the Bulldogs' practice facility on Sunday night.

The Bulldogs started their practice schedule a day early because a number of the players have to take the Regents test on Monday.

"It was a little different today with having practice on Sunday and I think we got some good work in," said head coach Mark Richt. "I think this will give the coaches extra time so we should be a little ahead of schedule."

When #8 Georgia travels to Jacksonville, Fla., to take on #5 Florida on Saturday, it will mark only the fifth time in the history of the Florida series that it will feature a pair of top-10 nationally ranked teams. The Bulldogs and Gators have each won two games when they are both ranked in the top 10.

Not only does Saturday's matchup pit the two teams that are tied for first in the Southeastern Conference's Eastern Division, but it also showcases the two top-scoring teams in the league. Florida is averaging 42.0 points a game while the Bulldogs are putting up 34.2.
