ATHENS, Ga. -- New Mexico State coach DeWayne Walker was nearly speechless trying to describe what he had just witnessed.
"We're better than that score," he said after the Aggies lost 63-16 to No. 18 Georgia on Saturday. "We just picked the wrong day to not play well. I guess obviously [Georgia] needed to make a statement, so we're just going to go back and get ourselves ready for next week."
Aaron Murray threw five second-quarter touchdown passes and former walk-on receiver Brandon Harton ran for 98 yards in Georgia's seventh consecutive win.
The Bulldogs (7-2) turned to Harton this week after Isaiah Crowell and Carlton Thomas were suspended one game for failing a drug test. Georgia was also without No. 2 tailback Richard Samuel, who will miss the next month after undergoing ankle surgery.
