JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The University of Georgia football team hasn’t put together a complete game yet.
Coach Kirby Smart says that has to change for the Bulldogs to have a chance against Florida.
“I want to play our best game in all facets of the game, being able to be balanced on offense and being able to control the line of scrimmage on defense and play well in the kicking game,” Smart said.
“That’s the part that we’ve got to be able to do all three, and some of them have hit on all cylinders at all different times. We need them to hit all the same time, especially when you’re playing a defense of this caliber in them.”
Smart said the Bulldogs (4-3 overall, 2-3 Southeastern Conference) had good practices during the week — “even a little bit chippy,” he said Thursday.
“The kids really are excited and I am too,” he said. “It’s a great rivalry game, a great opportunity for us, and the kids are ready to play.”
No. 14 Florida (5-1, 3-1) has won two straight in the series and six of 10.
