No. 6 Georgia wants to avoid letdown at Tennessee

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray likely will become the Southeastern Conference's all-time leader in career yards passing Saturday at Tennessee.

Tennessee will try to make sure he remembers this game for an entirely different reason.

Now that the sixth-ranked Bulldogs (3-1, 2-0 SEC) have survived a brutal September schedule with their national title hopes intact, they must avoid a letdown against a Tennessee (3-2, 0-1) team that feasts on turnovers.

Murray is 99 yards away from matching former Georgia quarterback David Greene's SEC record of 11,528 career yards passing. He faces a Tennessee defense that has picked off 11 passes to match Virginia Tech for the most among all Football Bowl Subdivision programs.

Murray leads a Georgia offense that has scored at least 35 points in each of its four games.
