Murray, Georgia overpower Appalachian State 45-6
GEORGIA 45, APPALACHIAN ST 6

By CHARLES ODUM
AP Sports Writer

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Aaron Murray threw two touchdown passes to
set the SEC career record, and Georgia broke open a close game
with a dominant second half to beat Appalachian State 45-6
Saturday.

Todd Gurley, J.J. Green and Brendan Douglas ran for touchdowns
as Georgia (6-3) outscored the Mountaineers 31-0 in the second
half after leading only 14-6 at halftime.

Appalachian State (2-8) reached eight losses for the first time
since a 3-8 finish in 1979. The Mountaineers, in their last
season as a FCS team, are moving to the Sun Belt Conference in
2014.

Murray completed 19 of 26 passes for 281 yards with touchdown
passes to Rantavious Wooten and Michael Bennett. He threw one
interception. Hutson Mason took over in the fourth quarter and
threw a 3-yard scoring pass to Kenneth Towns.

Murray began the day one touchdown pass behind Danny Wuerffel's
Southeastern Conference record of 114 at Florida from 1993-96.

Murray matched Wuerffel's mark with his 35-yard scoring pass to
Wooten in the first quarter. Murray, making his 50th consecutive
start, threw over the middle to Bennett for a 23-yard touchdown
pass early in the second quarter to set the record. He already
set SEC career records for yards passing and total offense this
season.

Murray's scoring passes were rare highlights in a listless first
half for Georgia.

Appalachian State quarterback Kameron Bryant was effective with
quick, short throws early in the game. Bryant was 8 for 8
passing for 73 yards to set up Drew Stewart's 33-yard field goal
on the Mountaineers' opening drive. Andrew Peacock caught five
passes on the drive and had 12 receptions for 90 yards in the
game.

Stewart added a 49-yard field goal, the longest of his career,
late in the first quarter. He had another 49-yarder blocked at
the line by Jordan Jenkins and was wide left from 46 yards in
the second quarter.

Bryant completed 22 of 39 passes for 221 yards with one
interception. Marcus Cox led the Mountaineers with 23 carries
for 59 yards.

Mason, seeing his first pass attempts of the season, completed
11 of 16 attempts for 160 yards with one touchdown and one
interception.

Georgia's Marshall Morgan kicked a 42-yard field goal early in
the third quarter before the Bulldogs launched their string of
four touchdown drives.

Murray had a 23-yard run and a 20-yard pass to Bennett on
back-to-back plays before having an apparent touchdown pass to
Reggie Davis wiped away because he threw the ball past the line
of scrimmage.

Murray recovered with a 12-yard pass to Bennett before Gurley
scored untouched from the 2.

Tray Matthews' hit caused a fumble by Cox early in the fourth
quarter. Jenkins recovered the fumble at the Appalachian State
42 to set up Georgia's drive capped by Mason's touchdown pass.

Gurley had 13 carries for 75 yards and a touchdown.

Georgia strong safety Corey Moore was ejected in the second
quarter when called for targeting on his hit on receiver Tony
Washington. Replays indicated Moore led with his shoulder when
he hit Washington's helmet on the incompletion.

It marked the second time this season a Bulldogs player was
removed from a game by officials for targeting. Defensive end
Ray Drew was tossed in Georgia's 31-27 loss at Vanderbilt.
Linebacker Ramik Wilson also drew a personal foul penalty for
targeting in the Vanderbilt game but was allowed to remain in
the game following a review of the play.
