Bowl Practice Begins


On Saturday, the Dawgs donned full pads for a 90-minute workout, the first for the team since their latest triumph over Georgia Tech to close out the regular season.

The Dawgs (6-6) will not practice again until Wednesday evening when final exams are complete. Georgia will have a total of eight practice days here before taking off for the holidays in preparation for its Liberty Bowl contest against the 24th-ranked Central Florida Knights (10-3). The team will reconvene in Memphis for final preparations starting on Dec. 26th.

“Practice was short and sweet, and it was just good to get the body going again,” said redshirt freshman quarterback Aaron Murray.

Murray and UCF quarterback Jeff Godfrey are the two highest rated freshmen nationally in passing efficiency. Also, Murray has tied the school record for touchdown responsibility in a season with 28, passing for 24 and running for four. Godfrey has accounted for 23 touchdowns, running for 10 and passing for 13.

Georgia is making its 14th consecutive bowl appearance, and it ranks as one of the top five bowl teams of all-time in wins and appearances. Georgia is 26-16-3 all-time in bowl games including 7-2 under head coach Mark Richt.
