Murray pulling for Florida to help Georgia

Posted: Updated:
ATHENS, GA (AP) -

Aaron Murray isn't asking Georgia fans to wear Florida's orange and blue on Saturday. He's not expecting to see Bulldogs fans doing the Gator chomp.

All the same, the quarterback says every Georgia fan "has a free pass" to cheer for Florida on Saturday, if only for that one day. He says "I definitely am."

Murray realizes No. 13 Georgia, which plays at Kentucky on Saturday, needs help in the Southeastern Conference East Division race. Florida can provide that help.

Georgia (5-1, 3-1 SEC) trails Florida and South Carolina in the division. The Bulldogs could move to the top of the East if Florida beats South Carolina this week and Georgia beats Kentucky and Florida.

Georgia plays Florida next week, but coach Mark Richt wants his team's focus on Kentucky.
