ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Aaron Murray says it's good he's had three seasons to prepare for Georgia's tough first few games this year.

Georgia opens at Clemson on Aug. 31 and also will play South Carolina and LSU in its first four games. Each of the three teams could be ranked in the top 15.

Asked Thursday how he would have reacted to those early challenges as a sophomore, Murray said "Oh, I'd be terrified."

As a senior, Murray says he's "more excited" about the schedule as Georgia opened practice on Thursday. The Bulldogs' offense is expected to be strong with 10 returning starters, including tailbacks Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall. Only four starters return on defense.

Georgia finished 12-2 and No. 5 in the Top 25 last season.
