KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Georgias national title hopes kept shrinking as its injury list kept growing. Then Aaron Murray and Marshall Morgan came to the rescue and saved the sixth-ranked Bulldogs championship aspirations. Morgan kicked a 42-yard field goal in overtime after Murray threw a game-tying touchdown pass with 5 seconds remaining in regulation Saturday as Georgia overcame a flurry of injuries in a 34-31 victory at Tennessee. "I hit it and I knew it was good," Morgan said. "I was just thinking - I dont know - I just kind of lay down because I saw people running at me and my knees already (been) hurting all game." Morgan wasnt the only Bulldog with an aching knee. Georgia running back Keith Marshall injured his right knee in the first quarter and was carted into the locker room, the first sign this day might not go as planned for the Bulldogs. They found a way to win anyhow. Georgia (4-1, 3-0 SEC) forced overtime on Murrays 2-yard touchdown pass to Rantavious Wooten to make it 31-all. Georgia coach Mark Richt said the play actually was designed as a fade to the outside, but Murray instead found Wooten open across the middle. Rajion Neals 7-yard run had put Tennessee (3-3, 0-2) ahead 31-24 with 1:54 left after Justin Worley found A.J. Branisel for a 28-yard completion on fourth-and-1 from the Georgia 35. Tennessees Alton "Pig" Howard capped the first overtime possession by losing control of the ball as he dove toward the front right corner of the end zone. Howards play was initially ruled a 7-yard touchdown, but replays showed he fumbled prior to crossing the goal line, turning the potential score into a turnover and touchback. "Alton gave us a spark today," Tennessee coach Butch Jones said. "He was just trying to make a play." Murray went 19 of 35 for 196 yards with three touchdowns and became the Southeastern Conferences all-time leader in career yards passing. Murray has thrown for 11,625 yards to break the record held by David Greene, who threw for 11,528 yards for Georgia from 2001-04. Neal ran for 148 yards for Tennessee (3-3, 0-2), which has lost 19 straight games against ranked opponents. "A lot of guys went down today and that hurts a lot," Murray said. "We hit a lot of adversity all day long and we had to push through it, find guys to step up and guys stepped up, made some big plays for us." Marshall injured his knee after taking a hit from Tennessees Cam Sutton while reaching for an incomplete pass in the first quarter and was carted into the locker room. Wide receivers Michael Bennett and Justin Scott-Wesley and punter Collin Barber were knocked out of the game later. Georgia played the entire game without injured star running back Todd Gurley and safeties Tray Matthews and Connor Norman. Richt didnt have an update on the status of players injured Saturday, but he said Gurley had a 50-50 chance of playing next week against Missouri. Marshall was on crutches after the game. "I just dont know what the carnage is right now," Richt said. Georgia still built a 17-3 halftime lead on the strength of Morgans 56-yard field goal - the longest in Neyland Stadium history - and two Murray touchdown passes, But after a 39-yard field-goal attempt by Morgan bounced off the left upright in the third quarter, Tennessee rallied to tie the game. Tennessee had worn "Smokey grey" alternate uniforms Saturday in hopes of ending its history of frustration against ranked teams. The Vols hadnt used alternate uniforms since wearing black jerseys to a 31-13 victory over No. 21 South Carolina on Halloween 2009, their last win over a Top 25 team. Morgans miss had the Vols believing they could pull the upset. "This team has become closer than any team Ive been a part of and they hurt, but were going to keep grinding," Jones said. "Thats the only way I know how to do it and thats the only way theyre going to know how to do it." Tennessee cut the lead to 17-10 on freshman Marquez Norths diving 19-yard catch in the left corner of the end zone. The Vols scored the tying touchdown with 1:25 left in the third quarter when freshman Jalen Reeves-Maybin blocked a punt that freshman Devaun Swafford returned 15 yards. Georgia regained the lead when Murrays career-long, 57-yard keeper led to Brendan Douglas 3-yard touchdown run on the first play of the fourth quarter. Tennessee answered on a 1-yard burst by Neal, who had kept the drive alive with a 43-yard run on a fourth-and-1 play. Neal had Tennessee just a few seconds away from delivering the first signature win of Jones tenure, but Murray refused to let the Bulldogs lose. "We finished the drill," Murray said. "Thats something we preach all the time here at Georgia." Nike Blazer Shoes For Sale .

In a one-hour interview with TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun on Friday, Bettman discussed a variety of topics, including expansion, outdoor games and changes to the NHL draft. When asked about his recently reported trip to Seattle with deputy commissioner Bill Daly, Bettman said the visit simply coincided with being on the west coast for a playoff game in Anaheim. "We had a few hours to kill, we were in the neighborhood, so I figured Id go to Seattle to find out what the building story was," Bettman told LeBrun. "We werent there campaigning, we werent asking for anything, and thats been misreported. Based on the level of interest were getting from lots of people in Seattle and a fair amount of uncertainty and confusion about the building, we decided Lets go find out for ourselves what the story is with the building. And theres no prospect of a building right now." Investor Chris Hansen currently holds the rights with the city of Seattle to build a new arena, however Hansen will not move ahead with the building process until he has secured an NBA franchise. Hansen is not pursuing an NHL team for the arena, but would like to have an NHL team as a tenant of the arena under another owner. "The sense I get is he doesnt want to build a building just to have a tenant," Bettman said. "And since he seems to have things tied up with the city for the next three years, give or take, theres no certainty about a building." Bettmans takeaway from the Seattle tour; that "the possibility of a new arena is at best uncertain." Bettman said he is also aware of the arena being built in Quebec City, as well as the plans for an MGM Arena in Las Vegas, however expansion for his league currently remains off the table. "Things are popping up, but were not in an expansion process. Could we get to one at some point? Maybe.dddddddddddd But right now were not focused on going through an expansion process." While the league may not be expanding franchises, expanding fan bases through outdoor games will continue. The commissioner acknowledged that though the number of outdoor games will drop from the record six played last season, the league will play more than one outdoor game in 2014-15. Bettman explained that the elevated number of games this past season stemmed from various circumstances. "This year we used those games in a variety of ways. Part of it was promoting us going into the Olympics, part of it was promoting it coming out. And doing it in New York [around the Super Bowl] with two games...we had to do lots of stuff. Our people did an extraordinary job, but we really taxed things to the limit. But also, interestingly enough, the Olympic break let us set up for more games. So, itll be more than one and less than six next season." As the league continues its tradition of adding excitement with outdoor games, the discussion of adding more excitement to the draft has also come up. "The GMs have asked us whether or not more teams should be eligible for the lottery result moving up more teams and whether or not the odds should be adjusted a little bit. Thats something were looking at," Bettman said. Bettman told LeBrun it would be premature to say if the adjustments would be made in time for the 2015 Draft, but said changes are being contemplated. "We havent finished a proposal thats been circulated... I think if were going to make an adjustment, itll be that more picks are selected by the lottery and we might smooth out the odds a little. But again, thats not something were at yet." The current NHL draft process gives every non-playoff team a chance at the first overall selection, with percentages declining from 25 percent. The 2014 NHL Draft will take place on June 27-28 in Philadelphia. ' ' '
