ATHENS, Ga. — Aaron Murray threw four touchdown passes to surpass Matthew Stafford’s school record and No. 14 Georgia romped past No. 24 Auburn 45-7 Saturday, moving within one win of playing for the Southeastern Conference championship.
The Bulldogs (8-2, 6-1 SEC) won their eighth in a row with a dominating performance in the Deep South’s oldest rivalry. They raced to a 35-7 halftime lead over the stunned Tigers (6-4, 4-3) and finished with their biggest win in the series since 1946.
Georgia can clinch its first division title in six years at home next weekend against Kentucky.
Murray now has 27 TDs for the season — nine in the past two weeks. He broke the school mark of 25 set in 2008 by Stafford, a top pick in the NFL draft.
