PLAYERS: Mark Richt
TEAMS: Georgia Bulldogs

If Georgia was planning to take the week off, coach Mark Richt merely had to throw out two words to get his players' attention. Louisiana-Monroe. Yes, the No. 7 Bulldogs are a huge favorite for Saturday night's game against Florida Atlantic, but Arkansas was in essentially the same position a week ago. Look what happened there - Louisiana-Monroe pulled off a shocking 34-31 upset, knocking the Razorbacks, who had been ranked right behind Georgia, all the way out of the Associated Press poll. At first glance, Florida Atlantic (1-1) doesn't look like much of a threat. The Owls have just two victories in the last 22 months, and one of those was an ugly 7-3 win over lower-division Wagner in the season opener. Georgia (2-0) opened as a 44 1/2-point favorite.

Georgia Bulldogs: Wherefore Art Thou Tight Ends?

To be honest, it was a possibility that Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo...

Georgia's Jones never relishes success for long

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Aaron Murray passed for a career-best 342 yards and two touchdowns, also scored twice with short runs, and No. 7 Georgia bounced back from another slow start to blow out Florida Atlantic 56-20 on Saturday night.

FAU to meet No. 7 Georgia, then No. 1 Alabama

For $2 million, Florida Atlantic is getting two chances to knock off a storied college football program. Odds are, the Owls will be earning that money. Over the next two weekends, the Owls - a program with just two wins in the last 22 months - may as well be considered temporary members of the Southeastern Conference.
