Georgia Dawgs Defense Shines at Sugar Bowl

It was supposed to be a bout between two of the best offenses in the nation. However, at the Sugar Bowl's conclusion, there was only one quarterback still standing.

The Georgia Dawgs did not just beat the Hawaii Warriors, they pummeled them.

Sure, Knowshon Moreno and Matthew Stafford will get the bulk of the credit, but let's not forget the defense.

They sacked Colt Brennan on 8 occasions and picked him off three times.

They even forced 2 fumbles and recovered two fumbles in an absolutely dominating effort. This coming from a defense that has allowed nearly half the touchdowns that their offense has scored all season.

"Everyone was talking about their high-powered offense... defensive coordinator coach Willie Martinez told us just to come out there, just play fast and show everybody that it's going to be a defensive against an offensive team, we just showed that we had a better defense tonight," says senior defensive end Marcus Howard.
