Aaron Murray threw four touchdown passes, Todd
Gurley became only the second true freshman in Georgia history to rush
for 1,000 yards, and the No. 5 Bulldogs bounced back from a sluggish
start to blow out lower-division Georgia Southern 45-14 Saturday.
Georgia (10-1) reached 10 wins
for the eighth time in Mark Richt's dozen seasons as coach. Georgia
Southern (8-3) had a shot at the halftime lead, only to get scuttled by a
penalty, and Murray took control from there.
He completed a 24-yard touchdown
pass to Malcolm Mitchell with just 4 seconds left in the half, sending
Georgia to the locker room with a 17-7 lead. In the third quarter,
Murray hooked up with Chris Conley on a pair of scoring passes,
sandwiched around a 43-yarder to Tavarres King.
