ATHENS —- The Georgia Bulldogs worked out for just over two hours on Tuesday at the Club Sports Complex on Milledge Avenue, preparing for their SEC matchup this Saturday at home against Vanderbilt.

Georgia claimed its fourth win of the season, its second of the SEC schedule, with a 28-14 victory over South Carolina two days ago.  The postponement of the USC game kickoff until Sunday has caused the Georgia coaching staff to adjust its usual preparations for the Commodores.

`’You’ve got to move a little quicker,’’ head coach Kirby Smart said.  ‘’We started on the bus back on Vanderbilt and used those three hours. We met and we’ll continue to do that a little later than we’d usually do. As far as the kids go, we try to make it as normal a week (as we can). The more routine for them, the better. I think the coaches can handle it because we’ve all had short weeks before, and we’ll have to game plan a little bit quicker.’’

Saturday’s game will be 77th meeting between Georgia and Vanderbilt, and the Bulldogs have a 55-19-2 advantage in the series.  The game will also cap a week of Homecoming festivities on campus.  UGA has a 75-17-2 all-time record in Homecoming contests, having won the past nine such games.
