ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Georgia's Aaron Murray won't be the only accomplished senior quarterback in town Saturday.
Murray is the SEC's new career leader in passing yards and is on the verge of passing Tim Tebow as the conference's all-time leader in total offense. Those records, plus wins over top 10 teams South Carolina and LSU have placed Murray in the national spotlight for No. 7 Georgia.
James Franklin and No. 25 Missouri also are earning national respect. Franklin threw four touchdown passes to lead Missouri (5-0, 1-0 Southeastern Conference) to a 51-28 win at Vanderbilt last week. The win pushed the Tigers into the AP Top 25.
Georgia (4-1, 3-0) lost tailback Keith Marshall and two receivers to injuries in last week's 34-31 overtime win at Tennessee.
