Practice Report - Monday

The seventh-ranked Georgia football team began preparations for its third game of the season on Monday with a 60-minute workout in shorts on the Woodruff Practice Fields.

The Dawgs (2-0, 1-0 SEC) will entertain South Carolina (1-1, 0-1) on Saturday at 6 p.m. at Sanford Stadium. The game will be televised by ESPN.

“Not a bad day at all,” coach Mark Richt said. “We did a good job with our execution and I was happy to see that. We’ve got to get better every day with our practices. That’s the challenge – to get better each and every day.”

Richt announced the captains for the South Carolina game will be offensive tackle John Theus, tailback Nick Chubb, defensive lineman Chris Mayes and linebacker Jordan Jenkins. Theus and Jenkins were captains in each of the first two games as well.
