Saturday, September 20, 2008. (AP) -- Knowshon Moreno rushed for 149 yards and two touchdowns, A.J. Green caught eight passes for 159 yards and a score, and No. 3 Georgia scored a decisive 27-10 victory over Arizona State on Saturday night.

Making a rare regular-season trip out of the Southeast, the Bulldogs (4-0) came to the desert with an attitude. They had opened the season atop The Associated Press Top 25 but twice slipped a spot after victories.

On a 99-degree night in the desert, they hoped to make a statement in a nationally televised game against the defending Pac-10 co-champions. The statement: these Dawgs can defend.
