ATHENS: Streaking Georgia closes in on SEC East title

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - When Mark Richt's coaching future looked bleakest, he relied on his faith to carry him through.

Meanwhile, his Georgia players took care of business on the field.

The No. 14 Bulldogs (7-2, 5-1 Southeastern Conference) have won seven in a row, their longest streak within a single season since 2002. The surge has carried Georgia to the brink of the SEC championship game and calmed, at least for now, all the talk in Athens about an imminent coaching change.

Richt's team can clinch its first division title since 2005 with wins Saturday over No. 24 Auburn and the following week against Kentucky. The defending national champion Tigers (6-3, 4-2) would love to ruin things for their opponent in the Deep South's oldest rivalry.

The win keeps the Bulldogs (4-2, 3-1) in a two-way tie with South Carolina for first in the Southeastern Conference East Division.

Tennessee (3-2, 0-2) had the Bulldogs stopped at the 9-yard line when the Vols' Daryl Vereen was called for pass interference, giving Georgia a fresh set of downs at the 2. Crowell ran three straight times, the last a 1-yard run that gave the Bulldogs a 13-6 lead with 8:19 in the third quarter.

On Georgia's next drive, Murray launched a 71-yard pass to Malcolm Mitchell. Two plays later, Crowell ran 17 yards for another score and a 20-6 lead.
