Georgia State will practice in Dome on Thursday

Georgia State worked mostly on special teams on Wednesday and coach Trent Miles said he thought it went well.

“I thought we were fast and did a good job with all of our techniques,” he said.

The Panthers will practice in the Georgia Dome on Thursday ahead of next week’s season-opening game against Charlotte on Sept. 4.
