UGA head football coach Mark Richt is looking forward to Mississippi State on Saturday, following the Georgia Bulldogsfirst 2011 SEC win v. Ole Miss, 27-13. The Mississippi State Bulldogs (2-2, 0-2 SEC) are still winless in conference play, but are coming off an overtime win v. Louisiana Tech, 26-20. Coach Richt indicated on his weekly teleconference that another SEC win would be big for UGA right now.

“Getting a win would be great. It would put us over .500 on the year and in SEC play. If we do come away with the win, I know it will be a hard earned one. These guys are good. Their losses are to two very good teams in Auburn and LSU, so it’s not like they have had any easy games.”

Richt also commented on the positive progress shown with the UGA ground game on Saturday.

“I think that there are times where we blocked and our guys ran well. There were also times that we got some tough yards when we didn’t block so well. There are not going to be many wide-open spaces in the SEC, so you have to learn to get the tough yards and take advantage of the runs that get you to the safeties.”

Georgia v. Mississippi State is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 1, in Athens. Kickoff is set for 12 noon (ET). TV coverage will be provided by Fox Sports South.
