Murray leads No. 9 Georgia past No. 6 LSU 44-41

Posted: Updated:

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Aaron Murray threw four touchdown passes, including a 25-yarder to Justin Scott-Wesley with 1:47 remaining, and No. 9 Georgia rallied to beat No. 6 LSU 44-41 in a thrilling game between Southeastern Conference powerhouses.
    
The Bulldogs (3-1, 2-0 SEC) completed their opening-month run through a gauntlet of top 10 teams with a victory that propelled them back into the thick of the national championship race.
    
LSU (4-1, 1-1) got a career-best 372 yards passing from former Georgia quarterback Zach Mettenberger in his return to Athens, and the Tigers went ahead 41-37 on Jeremy Hill's 8-yard touchdown run with 4:14 to go.
    
But that was plenty of time for Murray and the high-powered Bulldogs on a day when neither defense had much success.
    
Murray ran for Georgia's other touchdown and finished with 298 yards passing in Georgia's second victory over a top 10 team.
