ATHENS, Ga. (AP) -- Tavarres King likes how No. 5 Georgia is getting production from more than a couple of receivers.

After the Bulldogs lost Michael Bennett and Marlon Brown to season-ending knee injuries, King wondered how less experienced teammates would complement him and fellow starter Malcolm Mitchell.

If last week's blowout victory at Auburn is an indication, King believes that Georgia will be just fine.

King, the Bulldogs' lone senior receiver and undisputed leader at his position with Brown sidelined, believes Georgia (9-1) will continue to benefit from its depth when Georgia Southern (8-2) visits Sanford Stadium on Saturday.

Quarterback Aaron Murray, who oversees a passing attack that ranks fifth nationally in efficiency, will have another chance to create some rhythm with Chris Conley, Rhett McGowan, Rantavious Wooten and Justin Scott-Wesley.
