ATHENS, Ga. Seth Curry Jersey . -- Two out of three aint bad. Georgia is certainly not complaining. Aaron Murray threw four touchdown passes, including a 25-yarder to Justin Scott-Wesley with 1:47 remaining, and the No. 9 Bulldogs rallied to beat No. 6 LSU 44-41 in a thrilling game between Southeastern Conference powerhouses Saturday. The Bulldogs (3-1, 2-0 SEC) completed their opening-month run through a gauntlet of top teams with a victory that propelled them back into the thick of the national championship race. "Weve played some hard teams," Scott-Wesley said. "It just shows were a great team. We can handle anything anybody throws at us." Georgia was only the fourth team since the BCS began in 1998 to face three top 10 teams in the first four games of a season. The Bulldogs opened with a 38-35 non-conference loss to Clemson, but came back to beat South Carolina 41-30 and now the Tigers. "Weve grown up a lot this past month," Murray said. "I think everyone in the nation knows what Georgia football is about now. Were a tough group of guys. Were fighters." About 10 minutes after the game, the team ran back on the field to celebrate with their fans along the famed hedges at Sanford Stadium. Coach Mark Richt gave his wife a big kiss and hug. "Im just honoured to be a part of something like that," Richt said. Now, the Bulldogs are well-positioned to make a run for their third straight SEC East title and trip to the conference championship game. "Were definitely happy," Murray said. "If had to lose one of these games, obviously Clemson was the one, just because theyre in the ACC. Not saying we wanted to lose. Dont get me wrong. But this is huge." LSU (4-1, 1-1) got a career-best 372 yards passing from former Georgia quarterback Zach Mettenberger in his return to Athens, and the Tigers went ahead 41-37 on Jeremy Hills 8-yard touchdown run with 4:14 to go. But that was plenty of time for Murray and the high-powered Bulldogs on a day when neither defence had much success. He completed three straight passes to quickly move the Bulldogs into LSU territory, and freshman J.J. Green broke off an 18-yard run to the Tigers 25. Then it was Scott-Wesley, breaking wide open behind the secondary to haul in a pass and tiptoe just inside the pylon for the winning score. "We have a long road ahead of us to get back to the top," Mettenberger said. "We have to win out." Murray ran for Georgias other touchdown on a sneak and finished with 298 yards passing. "We all know your quarterback has to play well to win a game like this," Richt said. "Aaron was phenomenal, gutsy, tremendous." Murray and Mettenberger were in the same recruiting class at Georgia, contending for the starting job in the spring of 2010. Mettenberger, a native of nearby Watkinsville, grew up cheering for the Bulldogs and dreaming of the day he could wear the red and black. But his actions off the field cost him his chance. Mettenberger pleaded guilty to misdemeanour sexual battery charges after an incident in a bar and was kicked off the team. But his ties to Georgia run deep -- most notably, his mother, Tammy, still works in football operations for the Bulldogs. Richt gave her the week off because of all the attention surrounding her son. The former teammates did all that could be expected of them. Mettenberger had three touchdowns on 23-of-37 passing, continually burning the Bulldogs on third down. He completed a 25-yard pass on Odell Beckham on third-and-22 to improbably extend an LSU drive that led to Hills go-ahead touchdown. But Murray delivered the final blow. "They are both great players," Richt said. "It was incredible how well they played." Georgia did plenty of damage on the ground in the first half, but star running back Todd Gurley sustained an apparent left ankle injury on a 25-yard run. He didnt return, watching the second half while wearing a windbreaker and walking boot. Richt wasnt sure how long hell be out. The Bulldogs werent nearly as effective on the ground with Keith Marshall handling the load, but Murray and his receivers took up the slack. Chris Conley had five catches for 112 yards and a touchdown. Michael Bennett hauled in a pair of scoring passes. Georgia finished with 494 yards, though the bulk of those came in a back-and-forth first half that ended with Georgia on top 24-17. Little-used Kadron Boone had two early touchdown catches for LSU, but Jarvis Landry turned out to be Mettenbergers go-to receiver. The junior had 10 catches for 156 yards, including a 39-yard touchdown that tied the game at 27 late in the third quarter. Georgias schedule gets easier the rest of the way, with only one more regular-season game against a team currently in the Top 25 -- injury-plagued Florida. LSU has a much tougher road, with games still remaining against top-ranked Alabama and No. 10 Texas A&M. "We have a good football team and we have everything in front of us," Tiger coach Les Miles said. "When you play a quality team on the road, you can learn what needs to be corrected." Custom Dallas Mavericks Jerseys . But that changed when he committed a five-minute major penalty and helped pave the way for a comeback by the Philadelphia Flyers. Vincent Lecavalier scored at 2:45 of overtime and the Flyers rallied from a two-goal deficit for a 5-4 victory on Sunday. Devin Harris Jersey . The club was unable to retain hitting coach Kevin Seitzer, who is bound for Atlanta. Seitzer replaces Greg Walker, who was assisted by Scott Fletcher this season as the Braves finished 79-83.With the NHL Draft coming up on June 27 and free agency opening on July 1, discussions between NHL general managers are heating up towards a busy off-season. Each day, TSN.ca provides the latest rumours, reports and speculation from around the NHL beat. Where Willie Go? As TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger tweeted Friday morning, there may be a change of heart in Pittsburgh as hes hearing Willie Desjardins is no longer a slam dunk for the head coaching job following his meeting with the Penguins Thursday night. Dreger adds that as of Thursday night, Desjardins was Pittsburghs target but perhaps his interest in the Canucks coaching job scuttled the Penguins plan. Broadway Bucks Craig Custance of ESPN.com speculates that if the New York Rangers use their second and final compliance buyout on Brad Richards, they could use some of the money saved to go after unrestricted free agents like Paul p;Stastny, Dan Boyle or Mikhail Grabovski. Jose Juan Barea Jersey. Floor Issues As John Vogl of The Buffalo News points out, the Sabres are about $16 million under the expected $52 million salary floor for next season. As it stands, their payroll for next season is $36 million, which covers 17 players. Vogl adds that if the team sends qualifying offers to restricted free agents Cory Conacher, Jamie McBain and Chad Ruhwedel, theyre still more than $12 million from the floor with Tyler Ennis and Marcus Foligno left to re-sign. Peter Prinicple As Tracy Myers of Comcast SportsNet.com writes, there have been no contractual discussions yet between the Blackhawks and Peter Regin, though his agent Craig Oster said things should become clearer over the next week as the NHL draft approaches. Regin, 28, played 17 regular season games, recording two goals and four points. NFL Jerseys CheapWholesale Nike NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys 2018 Cheap Jerseys 2020 ' ' '
