Richt gets 100th win, Georgia tops Tennessee 20-12

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Isaiah Crowell ran for two touchdowns as Georgia beat Tennessee 20-12 on Saturday night to give coach Mark Richt his 100th career victory.

The win keeps the Bulldogs (4-2, 3-1) in a two-way tie with South Carolina for first in the Southeastern Conference East Division.

Tennessee (3-2, 0-2) had the Bulldogs stopped at the 9-yard line when the Vols' Daryl Vereen was called for pass interference, giving Georgia a fresh set of downs at the 2. Crowell ran three straight times, the last a 1-yard run that gave the Bulldogs a 13-6 lead with 8:19 in the third quarter.

On Georgia's next drive, Murray launched a 71-yard pass to Malcolm Mitchell. Two plays later, Crowell ran 17 yards for another score and a 20-6 lead.

Murray finished 15-for-25 for 227 yards and Mitchell had 126 yards on three catches.

Tyler Bray was 18 of 33 for 251 yards for Tennessee.
