Dogs expect to have Crowell against LSU

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Aaron Murray's four touchdown passes were enough for Georgia to beat Georgia Tech last week without much of a running game.

The quarterback said Monday No. 12 Georgia will need more balance to have a chance against No. 1 LSU in Saturday's Southeastern Conference championship game.

Georgia hopes to have freshman starting tailback Isaiah Crowell back this week. Crowell missed the 31-17 win over Georgia Tech with a left ankle injury. He was in uniform but appeared to be favoring the sore ankle in pregame drills.

Coach Mark Richt says he expects Crowell will play this week.

Murray said Monday that Crowell's return is "huge" to Georgia's chances of pulling off the upset.

Crowell leads Georgia (10-2) with 832 yards rushing and five touchdowns, including four 100-yard games.
