ATLANTA (AP) -- With Georgia one win away from playing for a national championship, quarterback Aaron Murray has suddenly imposed a media blackout.

The school says Murray met with coach Mark Richt and got permission to be relieved from his media responsibilities leading up to the Southeastern Conference championship game between the third-ranked Bulldogs and No. 2 Alabama. The winner will advance to face top-ranked Notre Dame for the BCS title.

Murray has always been one of Georgia's most accessible players, usually meeting with the media on Tuesdays and after games. But he gave a hint that approach would change when he didn't hang around following last week's win over Georgia Tech.

Murray is the nation's top-rated passer and the first quarterback in SEC history with three straight 3,000-yard seasons through the air.
