    Birmingham, Ala. -- With a trip to the SEC Championship looming over Athens on Saturday, Georgia handled their rivalry business, defeating Georgia Tech 42-10 at Sanford Stadium. This is UGA's 63rd win all-time against the Yellow Jackets.

    The Bulldogs move to 11-1 on the year, and will head to Atlanta to compete for the conference championship. Georgia Tech falls to 6-6 on the season.

    Georgia played well on both sides of the ball, manhandling the Rambling Wreck for four quarters. Head coach Mark Richt's team jumped out early, taking a 28-3 advantage heading into the locker room. Aaron Murray had an efficient performance going 14-of-17 and throwing for 265 yards and a touchdown. The Bulldogs freshman running attack of Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall, commonly known as "Gurshall", ran for a combined four scores in the Saturday victory.

    Georgia wasted no time getting on the board, taking advantage of a big kickoff return to reach the endzone in just four plays. Gurley added the exclamation point, running in from three yards out to put the Bulldogs ahead for good.
