Bulldogs Keep SEC Title Hopes Alive

By  | 

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia has done all it can. Now, the
Bulldogs need a little help to reach the Southeastern Conference
championship game.
Knowshon Moreno ran for 124 yards, Matthew Stafford surprised
Kentucky with a 10-yard touchdown run and Number 8 Georgia overcame
four turnovers and an early deficit to beat 22nd-ranked Kentucky
24-13 today.
The Bulldogs (9-2, 6-2 SEC) clinched at least a tie for first in
the Eastern Division and will face top-ranked LSU in the December
first title game in nearby Atlanta if Tennessee loses either of its
last two games.
The Vols were facing state rival Vanderbilt today, and will
close the regular season next weekend at Kentucky.
The Wildcats (7-4, 3-4) didn't have any hope of reaching the SEC
championship game, but they were trying to win out and claim at
least a share of the division crown. But their high-scoring
offense, which was averaging more than 37 points a game, couldn't
take advantage of two interceptions and two fumbles by the
Georgia's defense saved the day, holding Kentucky to its lowest
output of the season, despite spotting the Wildcats a 10-lead, and
helping avenge a 24-20 loss in Lexington last season.
