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.
