Orlando, FL (Sports Network) - Georgia was left completely out of the BCS after coming up five yards shy to Alabama in the SEC Championship Game and of playing in the BCS title game.

Aaron Murray made sure there'd be no letdown in the Capital One Bowl.

Murray threw five touchdown passes in the sixth-ranked Bulldogs' 45-31 triumph over No. 23 Nebraska.

The senior signal-caller tallied 428 yards through the air on 19-of-34 efficiency for Georgia (12-2), which reached 12 wins for the third time in program history.

Rex Burkhead had 140 yards rushing and a score on 24 carries for the Cornhuskers (10-4), who suffered a 70-31 loss to Wisconsin in the Big Ten title game.

Nebraska closed the campaign with back-to-back losses on the heels of a six- game winning streak.
