ATHENS -- Aaron Murray threw four touchdown passes and No. 7 Georgia overcame a slow start to beat Mississippi 37-10 on Saturday and move one win away from a spot in the Southeastern Conference championship game.

Georgia (8-1, 6-1 SEC) trailed 10-0 before scoring 37 unanswered points. The Bulldogs can clinch the SEC East title and second straight trip to the conference championship game with a win at Auburn next week.

Georgia linebacker Alec Ogletree had a safety, a sack and an interception. His twin brother, fullback Alexander Ogletree, had an 8-yard touchdown run.

Georgia's defense, coming off last week's 17-9 win over then-No. 3 Florida, delivered another strong performance, holding Ole Miss to 234 yards. The Rebels were limited to just 55 yards in the second half.

Jeff Scott led Ole Miss with only 21 yards rushing on 13 carries.

Damian Swann recovered two fumbles for Georgia.

From the 11:45 mark of the second quarter through the end of the game, Georgia's defense outscored the Rebels 2-0.
