Richt planning no 'blackout' vs. LSU
ATLANTA -- Georgia coach Mark Richt has no plans to add unnecessary hype before his No. 9 Bulldogs host No. 6 LSU on Saturday.
The last time Georgia was ranked in the top 10 and played a prime-time home game against a top 10 opponent was in 2008, and the Bulldogs were blown out by Alabama.
That was the infamous "blackout" game in which players wore black jerseys and all fans were encouraged to wear black attire under the lights at sold-out Sanford Stadium.
Richt says, "We're not going to do a blackout, no" as he turns the Bulldogs' focus to correcting problems from Saturday's 45-21 victory over North Texas, which capitalized on mistakes to tie the score early in the third quarter.
Georgia allowed two touchdowns on special teams breakdowns.
