Recap


Aaron Murray passed for four touchdowns and No. 14 Georgia extended its winning streak to 10 games Saturday with a 31-17 victory at in-state rival Georgia Tech.

The Bulldogs (10-2) head into next week’s SEC Championship Game against top-ranked LSU riding their longest in-season winning streak since 1982.

Georgia defeated Tech (8-4) for the 10th time in the past 11 matchups.

After Tech pulled within 14-10 on David Sims’ 5-yard touchdown run with 1:13 left in the first half, Blair Walsh’s 41-yard field goal with three seconds to go made it 17-10 Bulldogs. Walsh had missed his initial attempt, but Tech coach Paul Johnson called timeout just before the ball was snapped.

Georgia took control in the third quarter. Murray threw a pair of 3-yard touchdown passes, to Tavarres King and Aron White, as the Bulldogs pushed their lead to 31-10. Earlier, Murray found Michael Bennett on a 15-yard touchdown in the first quarter, and Chris Conley on a 14-yard touchdown in the second quarter.

Murray completed 19-of-29 passes for 252 yards. The sophomore’s 32 touchdown passes are a school record and tied for eighth-most in SEC history.

Tech quarterback Tevin Washington completed 3-of-10 passes for 34 yards with two interceptions before being pulled in the fourth quarter. The Yellow Jackets rushed for 243 yards against a Georgia rush defense ranked fourth in the nation.
