University of Georgia starting quarterback Aaron Murray throws a pass on the first day of football practice in Athens on Monday, Aug. 2, 2010.

ATHENS, Ga. — Aaron Murray has Georgia's first-string offense off to a strong start.

Murray passed for 237 yards and two touchdowns in Georgia's first scrimmage of the preseason schedule. Murray, the freshman starter, completed 12 of 21 passes with one interception.

Coach Mark Richt says the Bulldogs' starters on offense and defense "whipped" the backups. He says that is what he wants to see in a scrimmage.

The scrimmage was held at Sanford Stadium on Georgia's second day in full pads.

Caleb King had 14 carries for 63 yards. Washaun Ealey had five carries for 66 yards.

A.J. Green had five catches for 141 yards and two touchdowns.
