Dawgs Practice Sunday


The 18th-ranked Dawgs held a two-hour practice in full pads Sunday afternoon in preparation for the upcoming Outback Bowl against Michigan State.

They will practice again Monday and Tuesday in Athens before breaking for Christmas. Players and coaches will reconvene in Tampa on December 26th leading up to the January 2nd contest against the Spartans.

“It was another good day,” said coach Mark Richt. “We had great weather. Guys were competing well, and I thought we got a lot done. We got some good scout team work in, and we are starting to get the game plan in. We’re getting there little by little.”

The Dawgs will be making their 15th consecutive bowl appearance, and Georgia ranks as one of the top-five bowl teams of all time in wins and appearances. The Dawgs are 26-17-3 all-time in bowl games.

This will be the third meeting between Georgia and Michigan State in bowl games, with the Dawgs claiming a 34-27 win in the 1989 Gator Bowl and a 24-12 win in the 2009 Capital One Bowl.

Kickoff for the game between Georgia (10-3) and the 12th-ranked Spartans (10-3) is slated for 1 p.m., and the game will be televised by ABC. A win would give the Dawgs their fourth season of at least 11 wins under Richt.
