HOOVER, Ala. (AP) - Georgia is widely considered one of the favorites to challenge Alabama's dominance in the Southeastern Conference.
Whether that is realistic could be decided by the end of September.
Georgia was picked to win the Eastern Division in a media poll released Thursday, but the Bulldogs have a brutal early-season schedule, including games against potential top 10 teams Clemson, South Carolina and LSU.
Georgia coach Mark Richt said Thursday his team is ``in a race'' to be in midseason form by the time it travels to play Clemson on Aug. 31.
Georgia is led by senior quarterback Aaron Murray, who is the first in SEC history to have at least 3,000 yards passing in three straight seasons. The Bulldogs return 10 offensive starters and four on defense.
