Murray’s Biggest Wins

Quarterback Aaron Murray won the SEC East in 2011 while setting the school single season touchdown mark (35). He was second team All-SEC in 2011 and is projected by most national publications as ALL-SEC first team for 2012, considering the talent returning around him at wide receiver (Malcolm Mitchell, Tavarres King, Michael Bennett) and on Defense (#5 in nation in 2011, 9 starters returning). Murray will have the ball plenty in 2012, but can he learn to protect it and finally start winning big games regularly. He had fourteen interceptions in 2011, fumbled at key times and has zero career wins against top tier opponents entering his third season as a starter and fourth in the program (redshirted).
