ATLANTA (AP) - Heading into one of its biggest rivalries, No. 9 Georgia is still awaiting word on the status of star running back Todd Gurley.
Gurley was suspended the last two games while the school investigated whether he received improper benefits for signing autographs. The Bulldogs applied to the NCAA for his reinstatement last week, but the governing body has yet to issue a ruling.
Coach Mark Richt said Sunday that "we just don't know what to expect. We're just going to keep practicing hard and preparing for the game."
Georgia (6-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) was off last week after freshman Nick Chubb did a stellar job filling in for Gurley in wins over Missouri and Arkansas. The Bulldogs face struggling Florida (3-3, 2-3) in the annual Cocktail Party game on Saturday.
