JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Aaron Murray threw two touchdown passes on fourth down, and No. 22 Georgia overcame several mistakes to beat Southeastern Conference rival Florida 24-20 Saturday.
The Bulldogs, at the very least, kept pace with South Carolina in the Eastern Division.
It was Georgia's fourth victory in the last 22 games against Florida and could be a big one for coach Mark Richt. He had been under pressure since losing his first two games this season.
Now, the Bulldogs (6-2, 5-1 SEC) have won six straight.
The Gators have lost four in a row for the first time since 1988, a streak that certainly will taint coach Will Muschamp's first season in Gainesville.
The latest loss came against Muschamp's alma mater and eliminated Florida (4-4, 2-4) in the division race.
