AUBURN, Ala., Nov. 10 (UPI) -- Aaron Murray fired a trio of first-half touchdown passes Saturday and fifth-ranked Georgia clinched the SEC East title with a 38-0 dismantling of Auburn.

Murray's hot first half helped the Bulldogs (9-1, 7-1 SEC) jump out to a 28-0 lead at the break. He ended up completing 18-of-24 passes for 208 yards as Georgia secured a spot in the SEC championship game for the second straight year.

Todd Gurley picked up 116 rushing yards with a score on 11 carries and Keith Marshall ran up 105 yards and a touchdown on eight rushes in the Bulldogs' win.

Jonathan Wallace completed 15-of-22 for 181 yards with an interception for the Tigers (2-8, 0-7), who are in danger of going winless in conference play for the first time since 1980.
