Saturday, September 6, 2008. (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.
