JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Tampa, Fla., native Aaron Murray almost decided to play at Florida coming out of Plant High School, but instead went on to win three games against his home state’s flagship school.
Saturday’s 23-20 victory over the Gators earned Murray and teammates some bragging rights over Georgia squads of the past 20 years.
“Three in a row is awesome. It’s a great feeling,” Murray said. “This is just such a great game. It’s a true blessing and it’s a great feeling to win three in a row; something that hasn’t happened in 24 years and hopefully next year we’ll keep it up.”
Not only did Georgia win, but it won in familiar fashion.
“We’re used to it. We’re used to playing in tight ball games,” Murray said. “Every week it seems like something where it’s coming down to the very last drive.”
