ATHENS, Ga. — The Georgia football team began preparations for its first road and Southeastern Conference game on Monday with a 90-minute workout on the Woodruff Practice Fields.
The Bulldogs (1-0) will visit Vanderbilt (0-1) on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. The game will be televised nationally by CBS.
The Bulldogs logged a full Labor Day on Monday by lifting weights, holding meetings and going through the practice.
“I thought we got in some good work today,” Georgia head coach Mark Richt said. “We got our week off to a great start. We’re stressing getting better on a daily basis, knowing what to do and how to do it with great effort. I’m happy with our scouts. They’re getting better and they’re understanding how important their jobs are. We just need to keep it going the rest of the week.”
Richt announced the captains for the Vanderbilt game will be tackle John Theus and receiver Malcolm Mitchell on offense, linebacker Jordan Jenkins on defense, and receiver Reggie Davis on special teams.
Georgia is coming off a 51-14 victory over ULM, while Vanderbilt dropped a 14-12 decision to Western Kentucky.
Georgia owns a 54-19-2 all-time record against the Commodores and has won 18 of the last 20 meetings between the two teams.
