Georgia-Arizona State: Fourth-quarter reflections

Posted by ESPN.com's Ted Miller

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Georgia made its statement. It traveled to the West Coast and put a whipping on Arizona State.

Couple of things stood out for Georgia.

Matthew Stafford and his NFL-arm have found a go-to receiver in A.J. Green, a true freshman who looked like the best player on the field while catching seven passes for 148 yard with a touchdown.

The Bulldogs also showed Arizona State what a SEC defense looked like.

But part of that was the Sun Devils showing Georgia what a green offensive line and bad Pac-10 running game looked like.

For the Sun Devils, they played hard, but they were not good enough to beat the Bulldogs unless the Bulldogs make mistakes, and the Bulldogs do not make mistakes -- they didn't have a turnover Saturday and have just two fumbles and no interceptions this season.

As for the Sun Devils, early results in the Pac-10 suggest that being significantly worse than Georgia doesn't mean they can't complete in the wobbling conference.

ASU will only see one team this good: USC.
