Looking Back at one of AJ Green's Dominant Performances

As we are just two weeks away from the NFL draft, ESPNU has started running some games under their "Classic College Football" series of players who are expected to be high draft picks. Included in this group is AJ Green.

On Sunday (Saturday night) at 3:00 AM, ESPNU will run the 2009 Georgia vs. Arizona State game. Two of AJ's best games at Georgia came against the Arizona State Sun Devils. In 2008, he had his coming out party against in Tempe, hauling in his first 100 yard receiving game. While everyone remembers that game, people tend to forget the game the next year.

It was a rainy night in Athens, as a matter of fact, probably the wettest game I have ever been to Sanford Stadium. Georgia was heavily favored coming in and looked like they would put the Sun Devils away early. But turnovers in the second half let them tie the score at 17-17. With ASU attempting to take the lead late in the 4th, AJ Green went out on special teams and blocked the attempt. Just a few minutes later, he hauled in a long pass from Joe Cox that set up the game-winning Blair Walsh field goal. Here is a look back at AJ's highlights:

Catch the full game on ESPNU this weekend (or watch it on your DVR on Sunday afternoon.)

The home game against Georgia Tech (2004?) was pretty horrible up until ~3Q.

But that ASU game had people camping out in Tate 2 until literally 5 minutes before kickoff. And it never really stopped... I cannot remember a worse deluge at a football game
