Bulldogs Hit the Gridiron

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -

Georgia's improved intensity matched the rising temperatures as the Bulldogs scrimmaged for about two and a half hours today. The scrimmage, held at the midpoint of the spring football schedule with G-Day two weeks away, followed a lackluster practice yesterday. Richt says temperatures reached the mid-80s as Georgia's players, working in full pads, showed improved motivation and enthusiasm for the scrimmage.

Richt says the defense had the upper hand, though quarterbacks Matthew Stafford and Joe Cox each threw touchdown passes. Georgia has six more practices planned before its April 7 G-Day spring game at Sanford Stadium.
