Peach Bowl Practice Report: 12/27

ATLANTA, Ga. - The #9 Hurricanes are preparing for #10 LSU at the Georgia Dome for the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl game on Friday.

The team practiced for two hours today beginning at 2:00 p.m.

Miami is the designated home team in the game and will where orange jerseys with white pants.

"This was a good practice today. We are practicing fast and I think we stayed healthy today. The guys look good and are ready to play."

"The turf here is great. It is the new surface that everybody is getting. It is supposed to be the closest thing to grass. You can wear your grass shoes and supposedly not a lot different. Certaintly it is a fast surface and I think it is great to play on."

· CB Kelly Jennings means "more than you will ever know" to the defensive backs according to Coker. Not only is he a solid player, but he is a quiet leader. The senior from Live Oak will be playing in his final game as a Hurricane on Friday.

· OL Anthony Wollshlager will be a key to the offensive line as he will go up against arguably the best interior line the Canes have faced all season. Wollschlager has improved throughout the season, but will need to have a strong game in order to keep the Miami offense at a balanced attack.

· WR Ryan Moore (suspension), FS Anthony Reddick (ACL), CB Glenn Sharpe (ACL), LB Tavares Gooden (shoulder), RB Tyrone Moss (ACL), WR Terrell Walden (knee), RB George Timmons (leg) and DT Dwayne Hendrinks (leg) will not play in the bowl game.

Wednesday, December 28, at 2:00 p.m. at the Georgia Dome
