Franklin has thrown for 1,577 yards and 14 touchdowns in six games this season. He's missed the last four games with an injured shoulder but will return this week. This season is his third straight with at least 1,500 yards passing and 10 touchdown passes.
Murray has been a model of consistency for Georgia, and hasn't missed a start in his four-year career. He's 108 yards shy of his fourth straight 3,000-yard passing season and has thrown at least 20 touchdown passes in each of his four years.
"I am definitely proud of the way I've been able to play this long," Murray said. "It's been a little bit of luck, too, because I've definitely taken my share of shots that you see end people's seasons all the time. But no matter how I'm feeling, if I have even a remote chance of playing I am going to make it happen."
Murray flirted with leaving early for the NFL before deciding to return for his senior season. Georgia coach Mark Richt said the fact that he returned speaks to the kind of player he is.
"I'll remember him because he is probably one of the better team guys that we've had," Richt said. "We've had a lot of good ones, but I don't know if I've ever even heard him come close to tooting his own horn. It's always been about the team and about deferring credit to other people. It's always been about trying to win rather than get a record. Even coming back was a relatively unselfish act in my mind — to come back and try to help Georgia win, and he's done that."
Shaw has helped No. 12 South Carolina to an 8-2 record by throwing for 1,868 yards and a career-high 19 touchdowns this season in his third year as a starter. Shaw has thrown just one interception this season.
