Georgia wide receiver Chris Conley had four receptions for 76 yards and two touchdowns to help the Bulldogs defeat Georgia Southern, 45-14, on Saturday.

Conley has eight receptions for 108 yards and three touchdowns in the last two games for Georgia and has experienced an increased role since top wide receivers Marlon Brown and Michael Bennett suffered season-ending injuries.

Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray told Jonathan Branch of Dog Bytes Online that Conley has been playing great, as he's stepped up and made plays for the offense in the absence of Brown and Bennett.

Murray completed 18 of his 28 attempts for 330 yards and four touchdowns against Georgia Southern. Georgia has scored over 35 points in three consecutive games. They are averaging 37.6 points per game for the season, which ranks 21st in the country.

Georgia improved to 10-1 on the year after defeating Georgia Southern on Saturday, and will play Georgia Tech next week.
