Aaron Murray’s college career came to an undesired close when the 6-foot-1, 208-pounder tore his left anterior cruciate ligament in the second quarter of Saturday night’s 59-17 rout of Kentucky. Georgia announced Murray’s injury Sunday morning, adding that he would undergo surgery this week.
Murray finishes his career with a 35-17 mark as a starter and with Southeastern Conference career records in passing yards, total yards, completions and passing touchdowns. He certainly finished with a flurry, leading the Bulldogs to 48 points in his final three quarters of action.
Taking over for Murray will be redshirt junior Hutson Mason, who filled in admirably against the Wildcats, competing 13 of 19 passes for 189 yards and a touchdown.
