Georgia Tech vs Georgia: Aaron Murray breaks passing SEC record in win over Georgia Tech

The Bulldogs quarterback continued to snap passing records in a big win against Georgia Tech

In addition to throwing for 215 yards and two touchdowns and winning a 42-10 romp over Georgia Tech, Aaron Murray etched his name into the SEC's record book by becoming the first quarterback to throw for more than 3,000 yards in three consecutive seasons.

Murray's 15-yard completion to tight end Arthur Lynch on the Bulldogs' first drive of the day put him over the 3,00 yard mark, but both he and the rest of the Bulldogs were thankful that Georgia didn't have to rely on his arm to guide them to victory - instead, they benefitted from huge contributions from the running game and defense, which held the Yellow Jackets to a season-low 10 points.

Wide receiver Tavarres King, who has accounted for 704 of Murray's 3,201 yards this season, gave high praise to the quarterback from Tampa to Dog Bytes Online.

"Every time he steps on the field he seems to be breaking some kind of record," said receiver Tavarres King, who had one catch for 19 yards. "You just never know what that kid will do next."

Murray will hope to continue his hot streak this week against Alabama in the SEC title game, which proved vulnerable to Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel's arm a few weeks ago.
