Aaron Murray still bothered by SEC Championship loss

Paul Abell-USA TODAY Sports

Georgia's SEC title game loss to Alabama still haunts quarterback Aaron Murray. The defeat cost the Bulldogs a shot at the national championship.

The Georgia Bulldogs lost to the Alabama Crimson Tide in the SEC title game, and with that loss, their national championship hopes were dashed. Down four points in the waning seconds, the Bulldogs worked their way into the red zone but ultimately fell short. Quarterback Aaron Murray said recently that the game is making it difficult for him to sleep at night.

"I literally replay the entire game pretty much every night before I go to bed. It’s stressful," Murray said. "It’s a game that will probably haunt me the rest of my life, honestly."

Murray completed 18 of 33 pass attempts in the game for 265 yards; he had one touchdown pass and one interception.

The Bulldogs have an opportunity to finish the season on a positive note when they meet the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the 2013 Capital One Bowl, which will be played on Jan. 1. Georgia is a 10-point favorite in that game.
