Georgia's Aaron Murray sets record with 98-yard TD pass


It was only fitting that Aaron Murray's 100th career touchdown pass for Georgia also broke the Georgia school record for the longest score in school history, a 98-yard touchdown strike to freshman Reggie Davis.

On a day the Bulldogs got far more resistance from an outmanned opponent -- North Texas -- than most expected, Murray couldn't have been more sharp in a 45-21 win.

The senior completed 22 of 30 passes for 408 yards and three touchdowns with one interception, helping the Bulldogs pull away from a 21-21 second-half tie.

It was Murray's third career game over 400 passing yards.

The future NFL draft pick didn't have as much help from his rushing attack as he usually does. North Texas held Todd Gurley under 100 yards and held Keith Marshall to just 17 yards rushing.
