His first catch from Hutson Mason came on Georgia’s first offensive play of the game for 48 yards, the quarterbacks’ longest completion of the season. His last catch over his left shoulder beat Arkansas cornerback Jared Collins for a 36-yard touchdown.
“We had been going up against these corners all day and we felt like we could take them,” Conley said of his touchdown with 13:08 to play after Missouri had closed to 38-19. “The coaches had faith in us to do that. In a big situation, we put the ball in the air and we capitalized on it. We can throw the ball downfield.”
Mason completed 10 of 17 passes for 179 yards and two touchdowns.
Conley also scored on a 44-yard touchdown catch against Vanderbilt.
“Chris can run,” Richt said. “We’ve got guys that can get down the field. It just came open and we hit him.”
