Murray Hurts Knee, Georgia Routs Kentucky 59-17
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Aaron Murray threw four first-half touchdown passes before hurting his left knee and missing the second half of his final home game as Georgia beat Kentucky 59-17 on Saturday night.
Todd Gurley ran for 77 yards and had five catches for 90 yards, including touchdown receptions for 16 and 24 yards, for Georgia (7-4, 5-3 Southeastern Conference).
Murray, already favoring the left knee, left the game after he was hit by defensive end Za’Darius Smith following a pass that was intercepted by Khalid Henderson with 2:17 remaining in the half.
Murray was unable to put pressure on his left leg as he was helped off the field and taken to the Georgia locker room. Georgia announced Murray was taken to an Athens hospital to have a MRI on the knee.
Hutson Mason, who replaced Murray, threw and ran for touchdowns.
Kentucky (2-8, 0-7) lost its 15th straight SEC game.
