This isn't the first time Georgia Bulldogs head coach Mark Richt has been part of a team that had to go on the road to face a national championship contender piloted by a dominant, dual-threat quarterback.
The Noles' defense had more than its share of difficulty in stopping Vick, but Richt was able to counter that with his dominant quarterback/wide receiver tandem of Chris Weinke and Peter Warrick. Those two accounted for five touchdowns that were central to Florida State's victory in a 46-29 shootout.
That formula for success could be the blueprint for a Bulldogs' victory over the Auburn Tigers on Saturday.
K.C. Joyner writes of Aaron Murray -- a far better first-year QB than you might think -- and Mark Richt's gameplan in the 1999 FSU vs. Virginia Tech BCS title game (Richt was FSU offensive coordinator). If he lets Murray hook up often with A.J. Green this weekend, Georgia is primed to stun Auburn.
