There doesn't appear to be any clear-cut separation among the Georgia quarterbacks, but the two redshirt freshmen had the best days last Saturday in the Bulldogs' scrimmage.

Aaron Murray was 10-of-15 for 125 yards and a 40-yard touchdown pass to A.J. Green on a post route. Zach Mettenberger was 7-of-10 for 157 yards and threw a strike to Rantavious Wooten for a 65-yard touchdown pass.

One of the things holding Mettenberger back is that he likely faces a one-game suspension for his alcohol-related arrest earlier this month.

Junior Logan Gray finished just 6-of-14 for 37 yards and was sacked three times.

Over and above the quarterbacks, some of the best news for the Bulldogs was Wooten's outing. He had struggled for much of the spring and dropped several passes, but caught six passes for 146 yards in the scrimmage Saturday.

The Bulldogs need him to be a factor in the passing game next season along with sophomore receiver Marlon Brown, who says he's a lot more prepared to play physically and mentally than he was last season as a freshman.

Georgia coach Mark Richt said the defense won the first half of the scrimmage. He was especially pleased with the way the secondary went after the ball and the way the whole defense tackled. Safeties Bacarri Rambo and Shawn Williams each had interceptions. Williams returned his for a touchdown.

Wooten said he walked away sore because the "defense was bringing it."
