Cats improved but fall short vs. Georgia

Posted: Updated:

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Aaron Murray threw four touchdown passes to rally No. 13 Georgia to a 29-17 victory over stubborn Kentucky on Saturday night.

The junior finished 30 of 38 for 427 yards as the Bulldogs (6-1, 4-1 SEC) stayed within reach of East-leading Florida entering next week's showdown against the Gators (7-0, 6-0) in Jacksonville, Fla.

Georgia, coming off a bye following a 35-7 loss at South Carolina, had to work hard to get past Kentucky (1-7, 0-5). Despite outgaining the Wildcats 504-316, the Bulldogs trailed three times and needed Murray's fourth TD for a cushion 

Two of Murray's scores were to Tavarres King, who had nine receptions for 188 yards - included a 66-yard TD.

Arthur Lynch and Chris Conley also caught TDs for the Bulldogs, and Todd Gurley added 47 rushing yards on 12 carries.

Kentucky senior Morgan Newton ran and passed for touchdowns, and Raymond Sanders ran for a 3-yard score.
