ATHENS, Ga., Sept. 28 (UPI) -- Aaron Murray led a 75-yard drive for the deciding score late in the game Saturday, boosting No. 10 Georgia to a seesaw 44-41 win over No. 6 Louisiana State.

Murray led the Bulldogs (3-1, 2-0 SEC) on a six-play march as the clock wound down, hitting Justin Scott-Wesley on a 25-yard scoring toss with 1:47 remaining -- his fourth TD pass of the game -- erasing a four-point deficit.

The Georgia senior completed 20-of-34 throws for 298 yards with an interception. He also ran for a touchdown.

Chris Conley amassed 112 receiving yards with a score on five catches while Michael Bennett hauled in two of Murray's TD throws.

Keith Marshall ran for 96 yards on 20 carries as Georgia notched a third straight win.

Ex-Bulldogs quarterback Zach Mettenberger had earlier put LSU (4-1, 1-1) in front with a late TD drive of his own, capped by a Jeremy Hill run with 4:14 left.

He went 23-of-37 passing for a personal-best 372 yards with three touchdowns.

Jarvis Landry led the Tigers' receiving corps with 156 yards on 10 grabs with a touchdown.
