Georgia coach Kirby Smart said earlier this week that his program was “looking at some options” for an indoor venue to practice in ahead of their season opener against North Carolina. According to the Macon Telegraph, the Bulldogs are doing that Saturday at the same place that game will be played.
Georgia will practice at the Georgia Dome, which also is where the Bulldogs will play the Tar Heels exactly one week from Saturday on Sept. 3.
Smart has talked about trying to keep his players fresh from the heat they have been working out in during fall practice. The on-campus indoor facility is still under construction and will not be finished until January 2017.
A team source tells the Telegraph that the team also is trying to get the players used to the indoor turf playing surface they will be on against North Carolina. Saturday's practice is closed to the media.
The Bulldogs will have Sunday off. They will get back to preparing for the Tar Heels on Monday when Smart and select players will be available to speak with the media.
Georgia kicks off against North Carolina at 5:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.
