ATHENS, Ga. -- Although his football team is about to take its farthest trip west in the continental U.S. since 1960, Georgia coach Mark Richt won't vary from the Bulldogs' usual traveling routines.

Third-ranked Georgia has won 10 straight games entering tomorrow night's game at Arizona State and Richt says the Bulldogs will fly west today and return a few hours after the nationally-televised game ends.

Georgia hasn't traveled across as many time zones since the 2000 Oahu Bowl when Jim Donnan coached his last game in a 37-14 victory over Virginia.

The Bulldogs' last visit to face an opponent as far west in the continental U.S. was 48 years ago when they lost 10-3 at Southern Cal.

Georgia takes a 3-0 record into the game against ASU, which is 2-1 after getting upset by UNLV in overtime last Saturday night in Tempe.
