Georgia coach Mark Richt says victory over Gators will take solid effort from Bulldogs



To earn a vicotory over No. 3 Florid today, Georgia coach Mark Richt said Georgia will have to play one of its better games.

The No. 12 Bulldogs outscored Florida 21-3 in the final 32 minutes last season to defeat the Gators, and will be looking for their second consecutive victory.

So what will it take to defeat the Gators?

"First of all, you've got to be just very fundamentally sound,'' Richt said. "We've got to block well and tackle well. We've got to be disciplined in our gaps and assignments, and we've got to do a good job of protecting the football. We can't allow them to continue the trend of winning the turnover ratio. If they win that battle, it's going to be tough to win the game. It's been historically true in this match-up especially, so we've got to do a god job of that and do what we do best. We need to execute well. It's certainly going to be a game that's going to take one of our better efforts to have a chance to win it."
