Georgia Runs Past Florida In Jacksonville

By  | 

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Georgia Bulldogs celebrated in the
end zone early and on the sideline late.
They probably should have hoisted Knowshon Moreno and Matthew
Stafford on their shoulders for both.
Moreno ran for a career-high 188 yards and three scores,
Stafford threw three touchdown passes and Number 20 Georgia upset
ninth-ranked Florida 42-30 today in a game filled with costly
penalties, big plays and momentum shifts.
The Bulldogs (6-2, 4-2 Southeastern Conference) sacked Tim Tebow
six times and contained the Gators' high-scoring offense most of
the game. The result was a rare Bulldogs victory in one of the
South's most heated rivalries.
Florida (5-3, 3-3) had dominated the series since 1990, winning
15 of the last 17 meetings and eight of nine. Georgia turned it
around today, taking advantage of Tebow's bruised non-throwing
shoulder and Florida's porous defense.
