ATHENS, Ga., Nov. 12 (UPI) -- Aaron Murray fired four touchdown passes Saturday and 16th-ranked Georgia moved closer to an SEC division title with a 45-7 rout of No. 25 Auburn.

Isaiah Crowell racked up 132 rushing yards and a score, complementing Carlton Thomas, who ran for 127 rushing yards as the Bulldogs (8-2, 6-1 SEC) logged their eighth straight win.
