While Georgia Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt is happy with the Bulldogs' 17-9 victory over the Florida Gators, he already has his attention focused on next week's game against the Mississippi Rebels. The Bulldogs need to win their last two games against the Rebels and the Auburn Tigers to clinch the SEC East.

In an interview with Dog Bytes Online, Richt knows that the opportunity is there for the Bulldogs to win the division and reach the SEC Championship game:

"We know we've got to win," Richt said on his Sunday evening teleconference. "We know that we've got to continue to play like we did this last game to really give us our best chance."

In the latest rankings, the Bulldogs rose five spots in both the USA Today Sports coaches poll and the Harris Poll to No. 6, the same place they are ranked in the current BCS Standings. In the Associated Press poll, the Bulldogs rose to No. 7.

The Bulldogs play the Rebels at Sanford Stadium in Athens, Ga. on Saturday with kickoff scheduled for 3:30 p.m. ET. The game will be televised on CBS while radio coverage will be provided by WSB 750-AM.
