ATHENS -- Joe Cox and Logan Gray will be the starting quarterbacks for the Red and Black teams, respectively, when Georgia ends its spring football schedule with Saturday's G-Day game at Sanford Stadium.
Cox, a senior, is expected to take over for Matthew Stafford as the team's starting quarterback.
Gray on Friday was named the team's biggest surprise of the spring on offense.
Freshmen Aaron Murray and Zach Mettenberger are listed behind Cox on the Red team depth chart.
Among those joining Cox on the Red team's starting offense will be tailback Caleb King, fullback Shaun Chapas and receivers Tony Wilson and A.J. Green. The offensive linemen on the Red team, made up of the first-team offense, are tackles Clint Boling and Cordy Glenn, guards Tanner Strickland and Justin Anderson and center Ben Jones. The tight end is Aron White.
The Black team, which will wear white jerseys, features Georgia's first-team defense, including linebackers Rennie Curran, Akeem Dent and Darryl Gamble and defensive tackles Geno Atkins and Kade Weston.
The game will be televised by ESPN and there will be no admission charge.
