“One thing we have changed starting last week is shorten it by a few minutes. One thing it’s hard to remember is these guys have been going full-core for the last six weeks without a break,” Williams said. “I think that job coach [Brian] Hill did in the off-season in conditioning was pretty good and helped these guys get through these six weeks. As we get more into the year, we just have to be more mindful of how much contact we’re getting.”
The Bulldogs and Panthers will face off Saturday with the opening kickoff slated for 1 p.m. Central time.
