Georgia's talented backfield ready for Kentucky

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Aaron Murray's Georgia-red shirt relayed a message of reassurance:

"Keep Calm. We've got Gurshall."

Gurshall is the nickname for No. 13 Georgia's freshmen tailback duo, Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall. Each ranks among the Southeastern Conference's rushing leaders.

Murray says his mother made the shirt he wore to Tuesday's news conference. Asked why the shirt didn't bear his name, he smiled and said "I wouldn't want to wear that shirt, that's why."

The junior quarterback and the freshmen couldn't lift Georgia's offense in a 35-7 loss at South Carolina on Oct. 6. The loss ended the Bulldogs' school-record streak of five straight games with more than 40 points, and Murray passed for the fewest yards of his career.

Murray and Georgia will look to bounce back at Kentucky on Saturday.
