ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Aaron Murray threw two touchdown passes to set the SEC career record, and Georgia broke open a close game with a dominant second half to beat Appalachian State 45-6 Saturday.

Todd Gurley, J.J. Green and Brendan Douglas ran for touchdowns as Georgia (6-3) outscored the Mountaineers 31-0 in the second half after leading only 14-6 at halftime.

Appalachian State (2-8) reached eight losses for the first time since a 3-8 finish in 1979. The Mountaineers, in their last season as a FCS team, are moving to the Sun Belt Conference in 2014.

Murray completed 19 of 26 passes for 281 yards with touchdown passes to Rantavious Wooten and Michael Bennett. He threw one interception. Hutson Mason took over in the fourth quarter and threw a 3-yard scoring pass to Kenneth Towns.

Murray began the day one touchdown pass behind Danny Wuerffel's Southeastern Conference record of 114 at Florida from 1993-96.
