Georgia wide receiver Chris Conley started in place of the injured Marlon Brown and helped the Bulldogs secure a 38-0 victory over Auburn on Saturday.

Conley had four receptions for 32 yards and a touchdown and credited the coaching staff for preparing him to start on Saturday. He has 11 receptions for 116 yards and two touchdowns this season for the Bulldogs.

The game on Saturday was Georgia's first without senior wide receiver Brown, who injured his ACL in a 37-10 win over Ole Miss on Nov. 3. Brown has 27 receptions for 469 yards and four touchdowns this season, but will miss the remainder of the year due to the injury.

Aaron Murray was 18-of-24 passing for 208 yards and three touchdowns on Saturday. Six different receivers had receptions for Murray, including a season-high five by tight ends Jay Rome and Arthur Lynch.

Georgia clinched the SEC East division crown for the second consecutive year with the win on Saturday.
