Aaron Murray puts up record performance in Capital One Bowl

USA TODAY Sports

The junior quarterback has reportedly not made a decision yet about the NFL Draft.

Georgia Bulldogs quarterback Aaron Murray earned the game MVP award for his performance in the Capital One Bowl, although it was certainly a rough start to the game for Murray.

Two of the first three drives of the game ended with an interception thrown by Murray, including one that was returned for a touchdown by Nebraska's Will Compton for a touchdown to put the Cornhuskers up, 14-9. However, when the Georgia quarterback dialed in, he torched the Nebraska secondary.

Murray finished the day 18-of-33 passing for 427 yards with five touchdowns and two interceptions as he led a rally that left the Huskers in the dust. Georgia scored the last 22 points of the game to rally from an eight-point deficit and earn a two-score victory, 45-31.

In the win, Murray set Capital One Bowl records for touchdown passes, passing yards and longest touchdown pass when he connected with Chris Conley for an 87-yard score, in what turned out to be the last score of the game. The junior also set school records for passing yards and touchdown passes in a season with 3,893 yards through the air and 36 touchdowns.
