ATHENS, Ga. (AP/WVLT) -- Aaron Murray ran for two touchdowns and threw for two more scores as Georgia snapped a four-game losing streak, routing bumbling Tennessee 41-14 Saturday in a rude homecoming for Volunteers coach Derek Dooley.

A.J. Green caught another touchdown pass, his third in two weeks since returning from a four-game suspension for selling his bowl jersey to a person considered an agent.

Georgia (2-4, 1-3 Southeastern Conference) ended its longest skid since 1990 and provided a glimmer of hope in a season that has put the heat on longtime coach Mark Richt.

Tennessee (2-4, 0-3) made this one easy on the Bulldogs, turning it over three times, giving up four sacks and falling behind 17-0 in the first quarter. It was a frustrating afternoon for Dooley, the first-year coach and son of longtime Georgia coach and athletic director Vince Dooley.

Be sure to tune in from 7-8 pm for the Tennessee Postgame Report.

Sports Overtime will be live in Athens for the highlights, analysis, and interviews from today's game.

    Rocky Top you'll ALWAYS be is right. You fair weather fans need to stay home and keep off the computer I for one believe in our team and our coaches. It takes time to rebuild a team after the last two Fulmer years and the Kiffin debacle come on lighten up remember just how mature you were at 18, 19, 20 Huh remember inexperience is showing right now not a lack of effort. So root ROOT FOR THE HOME TEAM. GO VOLS I still say we surprise somebody before the year is out and get bowl eligible

Bleed orange and anyone who supports tn want be calling for blood cause of what that moron done last year move on dooley proved that he has what it takes to coach in the secc and I'm glad we got a coach who wants to stick around and build a power house again next year will be great

    People need to realize Tennessee is having to rebuild a program that was torn apart by Kiffin. We have a very good coach now who believes in tradition and the basics. Once he has had a chance to develop the young players we have and to recruit even better ones, the team will take shape. We are lucky we have not been blown out every game! The fact that we almost beat LSU and stayed in the game with Florida is amazing. It will take a couple of years to rebuild this team. True VOL fans who have always been VOL fans know this. Its not the first time. And true VOL fans will get behind Coach Dooley and our team and support them in the hard work ahead!

    Tennessee needs some major help!! I am not sure if Tenneessee has the talent to play in the SEC. Nor I am sure if this coaching staff has what it takes. I know this team is young and only time will tell. I know the coachs can only do so much then it is up to the players to execute. But as of right now neither players or coachs has showed that they can compete in the SEC.
