Georgia Hammers Auburn

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Georgia coach Mark Richt came up with another motivational gimmick for Auburn.

 This one worked just as well as the end zone celebration against Florida.

Of course, it didn't hurt having Matthew Stafford and Knowshon Moreno.

The Number 10 Bulldogs donned black jerseys for the first time in the modern era.

Stafford threw a pair of touchdown passes and Moreno broke 100 yards rushing for the fourth straight game to lead Georgia past 18th-ranked Auburn 45-20 Saturday.

The Bulldogs (8-2) remained on top of the Southeastern Conference East with a 5-2 mark.

Stafford threw a 58-yard TD pass to Mohamed Massaquoi and a 13-yarder to Sean Bailey.

Moreno is a redshirt freshman. He had another big game with scoring runs of 24 and 2 yards.

He finished with 101 yards on 22 carries.

Thomas Brown finished off the Tigers (7-4, 4-3) with a 53-yard run to the Auburn one-yard-line early in the fourth.

The Tigers led briefly in the second half, before Georgia reeled off four unanswered touchdowns.

Auburn has a week off before the Iron Bowl.

Ben Tate and Mario Fannin scored for the Tigers.
