Mitchell catching on

COLUMBIA, MO - Georgia’s leading receiver Saturday was a familiar name: Malcolm Mitchell.

After having just one catch last week against Vanderbilt, Mitchell had six on Saturday but for only 27 yards in just his second game since returning from his knee injuries.

“That might have been the most screens that I got since I’ve been here,” Mitchell said. “Like all together.”

Georgia’s longest pass play on the day went for only 14 yards to Michael Bennett, who had five catches and 53 yards.

Receiver Chris Conley had one catch for eight yards. He left the game after fumbling following that catch and went to the locker room with a left knee injury, but returned to the game.

Junior Justin Scott-Wesley saw his first game action since last October against Tennessee when he tore his ACL, but did not have a catch.

  Murray gets hitched

Just engaged former Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray was on the sideline pregame in a Georgia “G” Jacket.

The now Kansas City Chiefs rookie backup popped the question to girlfriend and now fiancée Kacie McDonnell on bended knee at Visitation Catholic Church Saturday night.

Their families were both there prior to going to all of them going to dinner.

“I kind of snuck her away from the family and did it there,” Murray said. “Thank goodness it was cold, I wasn’t sweating too bad so it was nice.”

Murray’s engagement was a lot less high profile than brother Josh, who did his on TV show “The Bachelorette.”

Murray was able to make the drive over with his family because the Chiefs are off this weekend.

“It worked out perfect,” Murray said.

  This and that

Sophomore Brendan Langley started at cornerback for Georgia in just his second game back on defense after moving from receiver. “I wouldn’t say I’m necessarily surprised,” said Langley, who had a pair of tackles. “Probably more happy and anxious than anything.” Bennett’s first-half touchdown catch was the 16th of his career, which ties him for sixth in program history.

Marshall Morgan connected on two field goals, including from 47 yards for his longest of the season.

With Gurley suspended and named a captain earlier in the week, the Bulldogs had just three captains: David Andrews, Ray Drew and Swann.
