Murray Tosses 4 TDs, Breaks TD Pass Record as Bulldogs Top Kentucky 29-24

Quarterback Aaron Murray set the school career touchdown pass record as the junior tossed four TD passes in leading the Georgia Bulldogs over Kentucky 29-24 Saturday night in Lexington. On the night, Murray was 30-38 for 427 yards.

Georgia answered an early score by Kentucky when Murray connected with Tavarres King for a 66-yard score to tie up the game at 7. The drive began on Georgia's own 3-yard line.

In the second quarter Murray set the record with his 73rd TD pass surpassing David Greene. After Murray hit King for a 42-yard gain, the two connected again two-yard strike for the record breaker. The PAT kick failed so Georgia trailed 14-13.

Murray led a 12-play 62-yard 2-minute drill that resulted in a 27-yard field goal when Marshall Morgan banked one off the uprights giving Georgia a 16-14 lead heading into halftime.

In the second half Murray had TD passes to Chris Conley for 22-yards and Artie Lynch for a 10-yards.

Georgia will travel to Jacksonville next week to take on No. 2 Florida. The game will air at 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
