JACKSONVILLE, Fla. ‚Äî 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‚Äôs flagship school.
Saturday‚Äôs 23-20 victory over the Gators earned Murray and teammates some bragging rights over Georgia squads of the past 20 years.
‚ÄúThree in a row is awesome. It‚Äôs a great feeling,‚Äù Murray said. ‚ÄúThis is just such a great game. It‚Äôs a true blessing and it‚Äôs a great feeling to win three in a row; something that hasn‚Äôt happened in 24 years and hopefully next year we‚Äôll keep it up.‚Äù
Not only did Georgia win, but it won in familiar fashion.
‚ÄúWe‚Äôre used to it. We‚Äôre used to playing in tight ball games,‚Äù Murray said. ‚ÄúEvery week it seems like something where it‚Äôs coming down to the very last drive.‚Äù
