Georgia QB Aaron Murray Breaks SEC Record for Career Passing Yards
Georgia's senior quarterback Aaron Murray entered the Bulldogs' contest against Tennessee Saturday needing just 100 yards to become the SEC's all-time pass leader as noted by ESPN:
Georgia's Aaron Murray needs to throw at least 100 yards Sat. at Tennessee to move past David Greene (11,528) as SEC's all-time pass leader— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) October 4, 2013
Murray needed little time to accomplish the feat, throwing for over 109 yards in a quarter and a half en route to surpassing the 100-yard mark and waltzing into first place all time in the SEC record books.
Marc Weiszer of the Athens Banner-Herald captured the moment perfectly:
There it is. Aaron Murray now SEC career passing yardage leader on pass to Conley for 24 yards. Now has 109 on day.— Marc Weiszer (@marcweiszer) October 5, 2013
As of the second quarter, Murray has 109 passing yards, which runs his career tally to 11,542 yards.
Murray is far from done re-writing the record books, as he now has a chance to seriously distance himself from the rest of the pack with seven games left in the season and some favorable matchups against spotty defenses such as Appalachian State.
If recent history is any indication, Murray will end the season with well over 3,000 passing yards. In his prior three years as a starter, Murray has thrown for at least 3,000 yards and eight touchdowns. His yardage total has improved each season, as he finished with over 3,800 yards a year ago.
Now clutching a prestigious honor as the SEC's all-time passing leader, Murray and the Bulldogs can turn their attention to a national championship as the perfect way to top off a record season.
Murray and Co. are well on their way with a 17-3 lead over Tennessee in SEC play.
