UGA vs. Central Michigan

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) – Knowshon Moreno rushed for 168 yards and tied a career high with three touchdowns to lead No. 2 Georgia past Central Michigan 56-17 on Saturday.


Matthew Stafford hooked up with Mohamed Massaquoi on a pair of TD passes, and the Bulldogs (2-0) also got an unlikely score from 282-pound defensive end Demarcus Dobbs. The sophomore picked off a deflected pass and rumbled 78 yards for his first career touchdown, giving Georgia a 28-0 lead late in the first half.

Central Michigan (1-1) closed to 28-14 early in the third quarter, but Moreno broke off a 52-yard touchdown that stymied any thoughts of a comeback.

Dan LeFevour threw a couple of touchdown passes for the Chippewas.

That was the way the Associated Press put it. For me, this was a great game that put the spotlight on Matthew Stafford, Mohamed Massaquoi and Knowshon Moreno. These are the key players and they certainly showed it in this game. There were two great moments – one was Demarcus Dobb’s 78 yard touchdown and the other was Knowshon Moreno’s giant leap over Central Michigan during a return in the third quarter. I’m certain that that play will make the highlight real this week.

Can’t wait for the game next Saturday against South Carolina. It should be more of a competition as the Dawgs go on to defeat yet another worthy opponent!
