Georgia Vs. New Mexico State Final Score: Aaron Murray's Five Touchdowns Lead Bulldogs Over Aggies

Despite being down its top four options at the running back position, the Georgia Bulldogs piled up 627 yards of total offense in a 63-16 victory over New Mexico State. The homecoming day game provided the Bulldogs a chance to catch their breath before closing out the season schedule.

Aaron Murray threw for five touchdowns in the first half and back up Hutson Mason added another in the second. Former walk-on running back Brandon Harton narrowly missed out on a 100 yard rushing day finishing with 98 on 15 carries with a touchdown. Chris Conley hauled in five receptions for 126 yards and a touchdown for the Bulldogs. Six different Georgia receivers hauled in touchdown passes. 

The Bulldogs defense forced three turnovers and New Mexico did nearly all of its scoring in the second half after the outcome had been long decided. Matt Christian was harassed all day throwing for 156 yards and an interception. Kenny Turner was the work horse for New Mexico State running for 94 yards and hauling in eight passes for 127 more. Turner scored both New Mexico State touchdowns. 

Georgia will sit back to watch tonight's Arkansas-South Carolina game. The Bulldogs are still tied with the Gamecocks in the SEC East standings but it is South Carolina that holds the tie breaker. Today's win was Georgia's seventh straight since starting the season at 0-2. Next up for the Bulldogs is a home date against Auburn next week.
