So what would Aaron Murray do for an encore after his performance versus South Carolina? Just light up LSU three weeks later in an even bigger game.
When the Tigers came in to play between the hedges, it marked the return of Tiger quarterback Zach Mettenberger—whom Murray beat out for Georgia's starting quarterback job in the spring of 2010.
The two former teammates put on a passing display for a full four quarters, with Murray getting the last laugh.
Murray completed 20-of-34 passes for 298 yards, four touchdowns and one interception—including a 25-yard touchdown pass to Justin Scott-Wesley with 1:47 to play to give the Bulldogs a 44-41 win over the Tigers.
"That was awesome," Murray said in postgame quotes released by Georgia. "I'm so proud of the entire team and how we came out today. It's been a tough start to the season, playing three top 10 teams in our first four games, and I am so proud of the way our team has gotten through it. We knew that today was going to be a fight, and we were up to it."
The win kept Georgia in the thick of the SEC East and national title races and solidified Murray's legacy as not only one of the most prolific quarterbacks in conference history but as a true "big-game quarterback."
