Thoughts on When Murray Might Break the SEC Passing TD Record

A few weeks back, I did a post where I mentioned that based on the numbers, Aaron Murray might well break Wuerffel's SEC record for passing touchdowns during the WLOCP in Jacksonville. As I had also mentioned, that would be pretty poetic considering Tebow broke Walker's rushing TD record against us in the 2009 edition of that game.

Now, however, it's looking like Murray, if he stays healthy (let's cross our fingers and throw up a few prayers), is probably producing at a clip where he will break the mark beforehand. At this point, Murray is at 109 career passing touchdowns. The record is 114. So far in 2013, Murray has tossed 14 TDs which puts him right at averaging 3 a game. If that trend holds, he'd be at 112 after MIZZOU and would tie and break the record the next week in Nashville against Vandy.

In the grand scheme of things, none of this really matters. We all know that getting a W is the most important thing, but wouldn't it be sweet if we win our next two and AM connects for 5 TDs. That would put him at 114 going into the Florida game. Then, the first one he hits in that game, and the record breaks. In Jacksonville. Against Florida! That would be pretty cool.

Go Dawgs!
