ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Thomas Brown ran for 180 yards and three touchdowns as Number 15 Georgia beat Mississippi 45-to-17 today.
The game was tied 17-all early in the third quarter before Brown, who scored earlier on a 50-yard run, took over.
The senior had four carries and one catch for a combined 45 yards on a seven-play touchdown drive that ended with his 4-yard scoring run. He added a 41-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter.
Brown's rushing total was the high for Georgia since 2001, when Verron Haynes ran for 207 yards against Georgia Tech. He matched his career high with the three touchdown runs.
Georgia's total of 328 yards rushing was its most in seven years under coach Mark Richt, topping its 280 yards against Louisiana-Monroe in 2005.
