Murray's big night nets SEC honor

ATHENS - Aaron Murray is the SEC's offensive player of the week, which shouldn't be too big a surprise.

The Georgia quarterback passed for a career-high 427 yards, which was fourth-best in school history, and the second-most for any SEC quarterback this year. Murray completed 30-of-38 attempts and had four touchdown passes.

Murray's performance was key in the closer-than-expected win over Kentucky, and one of the few bright spots for Georgia, which struggled again on defense and special teams, and didn't have much of a running game.

Murray also broke David Greene's record for career touchdowns, and now has 75, which is tied for ninth in SEC history.

This was the first time Murray was named SEC offensive player of the week. He was named the conference freshman of the week twice in 2010, after wins over Tennessee and Vanderbilt.
