Murray, Gurley lead Georgia past S.Carolina 41-30

Posted: Updated:

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Aaron Murray threw for 309 yards and four touchdowns, Georgia's beleaguered defense finally came up with a stop, and the 11th-ranked Bulldogs defeated No. 6 South Carolina 41-30 on Saturday for an early edge in the Southeastern Conference East.
    
Coming off a 38-35 loss at Clemson, Georgia could not afford another defeat if it wanted to remain a serious contender for a national title.
    
Murray took care of that, turning in one of the best games of his career and shaking off his reputation as a quarterback who couldn't win the big game. The fifth-year senior capped his stellar day for the Bulldogs (1-1, 1-0 SEC) with an 85-yard touchdown pass to Justin Scott-Wesley with 13 minutes remaining.
    
The defense made sure it stood up, stuffing Mike Davis on fourth-and-goal from inside the 1.
    
Davis led the Gamecocks (1-1, 0-1) with 149 yards rushing on 16 carries.

Former Aquinas star and current Georgia freshman Brendan Douglas saw his first action as a Bulldog. His first career carry went for 17 yards. He finished with 31 yards on 5 carries to help the Bulldogs seal the deal in the 4th quarter.
