Aaron Murray threw two touchdown passes, Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall each ran for a pair of TDs, and No. 3 Georgia stayed right in the thick of the national championship race with a 42-10 rout of Georgia Tech on Saturday.
The Bulldogs (11-1) extended the 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 just over a minute into the game, built a 28-3 halftime lead and was up 42-3 before Georgia Tech (6-6) scored its lone TD.
Georgia will face No. 2 Alabama for the Southeastern Conference championship next Saturday. The winner of that contest will likely play in the BCS title game on Jan. 7.

When Tech Has the Ball
For the 2nd week in a row, the Georgia defense faces the service academy triple option, and they will be tested to play assignment football and be fundamentally sound. Tech is a different animal than GSU in that they will run the offense with bigger and faster players and will likely attempt more passes than the Eagles. As I wrote last week, we need to...
