ATHENS (AP) -- A year ago, Matthew Stafford was too confident for
his own good and more than a little confused about what it meant to
run a college offense. Now a sophomore, Stafford is coming off the
best game of his career and looking very much like a quarterback
who'll be winning a lot of awards -- and games -- before his career
at Georgia is done.

In Saturday's 35-14 victory over Oklahoma State, Stafford completed 18-of-24 passes for 234 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions.

Georgia led 21-14 at halftime and Stafford put the game out of reach with scoring tosses to freshman tight end Bruce Figgins and
Michael Moore in the second half.

Stafford, a sophomore who opened his first full season as a starter, said he was excited about the way the Number 13 Bulldogs started.

He said the team is young in spots but played with a lot of enthusiasm.
