ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - With an eye on the scoreboard and the BCS standings, No. 5 Georgia will step out of its normal routine for a couple of weeks to play a pair of throwback teams.
First up, small-college powerhouse Georgia Southern.
The Bulldogs (9-1) have already locked up a spot in the Southeastern Conference championship game and should have no trouble adding another win to their record Saturday against the Eagles (8-2). Even so, this apparent mismatch could provide some useful guidance on how Georgia will handle its regular-season finale against another neighborhood rival, Georgia Tech.
The Eagles are coached by Jeff Monken, who used to be an assistant at Tech. Both teams run essentially the same option offense, giving Georgia a useful tuneup for next week's game against the Yellow Jackets.
