Green stars for talented UGA squad

Georgia is just 5-4 on the season but the home-standing Bulldogs will still put plenty of talent on the field in Saturday night's game against Auburn.

The sophomore leads the SEC with 5.5 receptions per game and 91.5 receiving yards per game. He's also hauled in six touchdowns.

"A.J. Green is a great talent," AU head coach Gene Chizik said. "He has a lot of range and speed. He is their go-to guy.
