Aaron Murray breaks SEC passing touchdown record

The Georgia Bulldogs took on Appalachian State on Saturday afternoon, in what turned out to be a game that included a historical moment for quarterback Aaron Murray. Murray threw for his 115th career touchdown, which led him past former Florida Gators star Danny Wuerffel to give him the new record for most career passing touchdowns in the SEC.

Looking at the players who Murray passed to take the No. 1 spot, it is safe to say he is in elite company.

Here is how the SEC passing touchdowns record leaderboard looks now that Murray is sitting with the top spot:

SEC CAREER PASSING TDS
PLAYER, TEAM TDS YEARS
Aaron Murray, Georgia 115 2010-pre.
Danny Wuerffel, Florida 114 1993-1996
Peyton Manning, Tennessee 89 1994-1997
Chris Leak, Florida 88 2003-2006
Tim Tebow, Florida 88 2006-2009

The best news for Murray is that he still has at least for games remaining in his college career, so he will be able to extend his career and post a number that shouldn’t be broken anytime soon.

Congrats to Aaron Murray for breaking the record, and his offensive line over the years for giving him the time he needs to throw.
