Georgia QB Matthew Stafford welcomes the heat

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia Bulldogs coach Mark Richt has hinted at more changes among the offensive line's starting five.

In Arizona State, Georgia will face one of the Pac-10's best pass rushers in Dexter Davis.

Linebacker Travis Goethel, safety Troy Nolan and left end Luis Vasquez are the other leaders on a defense that's allowed 17.7 points to rank third in the conference.

To counter some of the desert's effects on his team, Richt plans to make abundant personnel changes. The Bulldogs used 69 players against Georgia Southern, 68 against Central Michigan and 61 last week against South Carolina.

Quarterback Matthew Stafford just wants to keep the Bulldogs from having a major letdown and says he isn't going to worry about potential distractions.
