Aaron Murray says Georgia should root for Florida

Georgia QB Aaron Murray will root for Florida on Saturday, and suggests Bulldog fans do the same.

Georgia Bulldogs quarterback Aaron Murray will be pulling for the No. 2 Florida Gators as they take on the No. 7 South Carolina Gamecocks on Saturday, reports Gainesville.com. The 5-1 Bulldogs are 3-1 in SEC play, which puts them behind Florida (5-0 in conference) and South Carolina (4-1). That's enough to get him to root for a division rival:

"I think everyone has a free pass as a Georgia fan to root for them," Murray said. "I'm not saying deck out in Florida gear but definitely we would be a little happier if they came out with a victory on Saturday."

The Gamecocks rolled the Bulldogs, 35-7, putting them ahead in the standings and putting Georgia in a place where they'll need a little help if they want to win the SEC title. Florida is in a position to give them a hand come Saturday. They got some assistance last week from LSU, who beat South Carolina, 23-21. If South Carolina loses to Florida, and Georgia could beat the Gators when they meet on Oct. 27, that would put the Bulldogs in prime position to win the division.

Georgia is a heavy favorite over Kentucky on Saturday, while the Gators are just 3.5-point favorites over the Gamecocks.
