No. 3 Georgia 42,

Georgia Tech 10

Athens, Ga. • Aaron Murray threw two touchdown passes, Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall each ran for a pair of TDs, and Georgia stayed right in the thick of the national championship race.

The Bulldogs (11-1) extended their domination of the Yellow Jackets, beating their state rival for the 11th time in 12 meetings. This one was a laugher from the start as the home team scored barely more than a minute into the game, built a 28-3 halftime lead and was up 42-3 before Georgia Tech (6-6) scored its lone touchdown.

Georgia will face No. 2 Alabama for the Southeastern Conference championship next Saturday.

Murray completed 14 of 17 for 215 yards, becoming the first quarterback in SEC history to pass from more than 3,000 yards in three straight seasons.

Gurley finished with 97 yards on 12 carries and now has 14 touchdowns on the season, one shy of Herschel Walker's school freshman record set in 1980. Marshall, also a freshman, piled up 66 yards on just seven carries. No. 1 Notre Dame (11-0) beat Southern Cal 22-13.
