ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Aaron Murray threw a touchdown pass to Marlon Brown on the first play of the fourth quarter, Blair Walsh kicked four field goals and No. 13 Georgia beat Kentucky 19-10 on Saturday to clinch a spot in the SEC championship game.
Georgia struggled on offense after losing top rusher Isaiah Crowell to a left ankle injury after only two carries. Crowell's top backup, Carlton Thomas, was not at the game for personal reasons.
Georgia was left with Ken Malcome and Brandon Harton, who rushed for 101 yards, at tailback.
The Bulldogs (9-2 overall, 7-1 Southeastern Conference) leaned on Walsh's four field goals, including three from 39 yards, and strong defense to clinch first place in the SEC's Eastern Division.
