ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Their styles couldn't be more different. Their importance to the teams is downright similar.
Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray and Georgia Tech counterpart Tevin Washington are both having huge seasons statistically and figure to play pivotal roles in Saturday's game at Bobby Dodd Stadium.
Murray has already set a school record by throwing 28 touchdown passes for the No. 13 Bulldogs (9-2), a major reason the team will be heading back to Atlanta next week for the Southeastern Conference championship game. While he runs the ball occasionally, Murray is the prototype dropback quarterback.
Washington, on the other hand, directs the triple-option for No. 25 Georgia Tech (8-3). He's leading the team in rushing yards (849) and touchdowns (14), while also hitting the occasional deep pass.
