Moreno Leads Dawgs to 24-14 Over Vandy

By  | 

Saturday, October 18, 2008. (AP) -- Knowshon Moreno rushed for a season-high 172 yards, freshman A.J. Green had 132 yards receiving and 10th-ranked Georgia held on to beat No. 22 Vanderbilt 24-14 on Saturday.

Matthew Stafford threw a pair of touchdown passes for Georgia (6-1, 3-1 Southeastern Conference), which twice built 14-point leads but didn't put away the Commodores until Blair Walsh kicked a 40-yard field goal with 17 seconds remaining.

Mackenzi Adams, who replaced Chris Nickson as Vandy's starting quarterback this week, threw a pair of touchdown pass to Jamie Graham.

The Commodores (5-2, 3-2) lost their second in a row, again missing a chance to become bowl-eligible for the first time since 1982.
