Monday Practice Report


The Dawgs logged about two hours of practice on Monday afternoon as preparations continued for the AutoZone Liberty Bowl.

After a short special teams practice Monday morning, the Dawgs worked on situations during the afternoon session. 

“It was a good fundamentals day,” coach Mark Richt said. “We treated it like a regular season Tuesday with a lot of scout team work. We worked mostly on first-and-10 situations and finished up with some third-down work. We’ll work scout team only on Tuesday.”

Monday marked the seventh of eight days of bowl practice in Athens for the Dawgs. They will have a total of 11 practice sessions, including a pair of two-a-day workouts. The on-campus practice schedule will conclude Tuesday morning before breaking for Christmas. The team will reconvene in Memphis, Tennessee, for final preparations on December 26.

Georgia (6-6) will battle 24th-ranked Central Florida (10-3) in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl on December 31 at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium.

Kickoff is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET, and the game will be televised nationally by ESPN.

The Dawgs will be making their 14th consecutive bowl appearance, and Georgia 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 Richt.
