    Georgia Downs UL-Lafayette 55-7

    ATHENS, Ga.(AP) -- Aaron Murray passed for three touchdowns and ran for another in leading No. 23 Georgia to a 55-7 victory over Louisiana-Lafayette.

    Despite the absence of top receiver A.J. Green, Murray completed 16 of 24 passes for 194 yards in his first college game. Kris Durham caught two TD passes.

    Murray ran four times for 41 yards. On a 16-yard scramble down the right sideline near the end of the first half, he reached out to hold the ball inside the front pylon for a 31-7 halftime lead.

    The 55 points was Georgia's highest since Nov. 6, 2004, when the Bulldogs won 62-17 at Kentucky.

    Georgia (1-0) visits South Carolina next week.

    Louisiana-Lafayette (0-1) scored on Chris Masson's 60-yard pass to Ladarius Green late in the second quarter.
