The Georgia Bulldogs survived a brutal opening month of the 2013 season. The Bulldogs faced three top-15 teams in the first four weeks and come out with a 3-1 record, including 2-0 in the vaunted SEC.
A big reason for that success is quarterback Aaron Murray.
Murray doesn't have a catchy nickname and has seemingly been at Georgia for over a decade. But on the field, he is one of the more productive quarterbacks in all of college football.
Against LSU on Saturday, Murray was 20-of-34 with 298 yards and four touchdowns. Through four games, Murray has passed for 1,338 yards and 11 touchdowns. He is completing 68 percent of his passes at a clip of 11.5 yards per attempt.
With four touchdown passes on Saturday, Murray is now eight touchdowns shy of tying Danny Wuerffel as the SEC's all-time leader in touchdown passes.
No one had a more difficult schedule in September than the Bulldogs. Georgia's only loss came out of the conference to the current No. 3 team in the country, Clemson.
The biggest remaining hurdle on the Bulldogs' schedule is a date with Florida on November 2. It's about time we start mentioning Murray as a legitimate Heisman contender.
