The Georgia Bulldogs are getting ready for the annual G-Day Game, to be held tomorrow, Saturday, Apr. 14.

"It was a pretty good practice," head football coach Mark Richt said on www.georgiadogs.com of the team’s next-to-last pre-G-Day practice. "There was a little bit more action and spirit than I expected. Usually this is one where they've had just about enough before the game, so I thought we had good intensity and we got as much out of one hour of practice as you can get. It was a good day."

Former UGA lettermen joined current Bulldogs for dinner after the team had practiced for about an hour in shoulder pads.

In addition to the usual G-Day activities, the UGA Athletic Association will be pairing with the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia to sponsor a canned food drive, which fans are encouraged to join. Fans should bring a bag of canned food to the game for admittance. Fans should go to either the Main Gate, or to Gates 2, 4, 6 or 9; bins will be set up at each gate. Monetary donation stations will also be available; one dollar, the UGA Athletic Association says, equals four pounds of food.

All proceeds and canned food donations will go to families in Northeast Georgia.

Coach Richt updated the injured player list on Thursday. Shawn Williams, Malcolm Mitchell, Faton Bauta and Keith Marshall will not play on Saturday, Coach Richt said.

Fans unable to attend G-Day can listen to the game on the Bulldog Radio Network, as well as on Sirius Radio 212 XM 199.

The Bulldogs will have a final practice before G-Day on Friday.

The 2012 G-Day Game is scheduled for Saturday, April 14 at Sanford Stadium in Athens; the game is set to begin at 3 p.m.
