Dawgs Prepare For Vols


The Georgia football team continues Southeastern Conference play this weekend as the Dawgs travel to Neyland Stadium to take on the Tennessee Volunteers.

Speaking on his weekly teleconference, coach Mark Richt said, “Tennessee is very good at what they do and Tyler Bray is very accurate, as you can see. He’s got a great quarterback rating and he may be the best in the country, I know he’s the best in the league. It’s definitely going to be a great challenge for us.”

Georgia is looking to extend its winning streak to four and improve in the SEC East, after defeating Mississippi State 24-10 last weekend. Tennessee (3-1, 0-1 SEC) is coming off a 41-10 victory over Buffalo, and is still looking for its first league win.

“We’re tied for first in the SEC East,” continued Richt. “I know with tiebreakers, we lose out right now, but there’s still a lot of football left to be played. We know we don’t control our own destiny, but we know that there’s a good chance that everyone’s going to get knocked around. We’ll see who ends up on top at the end, but we’re closer. We’re closer than we were a week ago and that’s a good thing for us.”

Georgia has an 8-11 record in Knoxville, and Richt is looking forward to the challenge of playing there again this year.

“This game, at Tennessee, is a big challenge,” added Richt. “It’s very difficult to beat them in Knoxville and we haven’t done it in some time, so that’s our main focus right now.”

Georgia and Tennessee will play Saturday at 7 p.m. The game will be televised on ESPN 2.
