Georgia has been hunkered down in the Deep South since. In the past 10 years, no team has traveled fewer miles for nonconference games than Georgia, which has covered only 358 miles in that time.
All that will end on Sept. 20, when Georgia travels to Tempe to play Arizona State.
John Walters of NBC Sports.com has a list of the top 25 nonconference matchups of 2008 and the Georgia-Arizona State game tops the list, getting the nod over Ohio State at USC on Sept. 13.
