ATHENS -- Aaron Murray is reaching a milestone for durability as he chases another SEC record.

Murray will make his 50th consecutive start when Georgia takes a break from its Southeastern Conference schedule to play Appalachian State on Saturday. Murray's endurance stands out in a year every other starting quarterback in the SEC East has missed at least one game.

The quarterback is excelling as an athlete and a student. Murray already has set SEC career records for yards passing and total offense this season. He needs one touchdown pass Saturday to match Danny Wuerffel's conference record of 114 at Florida from 1993-96.

Last week, Murray and Appalachian State receiver Tony Washington were among 16 players to win $18,000 postgraduate scholarships when named National Football Foundation Scholar-Athletes.
