ATHENS, Ga. - Mark Richt has tried some different ways to split up G-Day teams - letting coaches or even players draft - but he liked how last year's format went, so he's going to try it again.

The two teams will be split according to the depth charts: One team will be led by the first-team offense and second-team defense, the other by the first-team defense and second-team offense.

Offensive coordinator Mike Bobo and defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt will serve as coaches of each team. Richt will oversee.

The game will feature 12-minute quarters, and de-emphasize special teams: No kickoffs, so possessions start at the 25, punts go 35 yards, and so on.

Richt also said he hasn't decided how the quarterbacks would be split up. But he said that as in previous spring games, players would switch teams if necessary in order to get the snaps that coaches want.
