Head coach Mark Richt said he has been pleased with the recent workouts after being concerned about how the team looked last week.
“The last two days, they have responded; I shortened practice a bit today (because of Picture Day, which was held Saturday afternoon,” said Richt.
“We had a lot of family members out there so that probably helped how they practiced. With people watching, practice is usually better.”
Georgia will host Buffalo in the season opener on Sept. 1.
The AP Top 25 was released Saturday, and — just like the coaches poll that was released Aug. 2 — the Bulldogs were listed at No. 6. USC took the No. 1 spot, followed by Alabama, LSU, Oklahoma and Oregon in the AP preseason top five.
“It’s good that people feel that way about us but we’ve got a long way to go and a lot to prove,” Richt said.
