Gamble, a 6-2, 247-pound linebacker, returned two interceptions for touchdowns, including one on the very first play of the game. He tied the NCAA and SEC record for touchdown interceptions among linebackers.
Moreno, a 5-11, 208-pound tailback, rushed for 163 yards and one touchdown on 21 carries for Georgia. It was his 11th career 100-rushing yard game.
