ATHENS, Ga. (AP) — Aaron Murray manages to stay upbeat, even during the tough times.

While in the midst of what is shaping up to be his best season statistically, the fourth-year junior has endured plenty of setbacks.

First, there was a four-touchdown loss at South Carolina, which again denied Murray a signature win. Then, he returned to Athens to find the rented home he shares with teammates had been egged and covered in toilet paper. Finally, the worst news of all: His father had been diagnosed with cancer.

He hustled off to Tampa, Fla., to be with his dad, who had surgery and is doing well.

On Saturday, Murray will get another chance to fill the biggest hole in an otherwise impressive resume when the No. 12 Bulldogs (6-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) face third-ranked Florida (7-0, 6-0) in Jacksonville.
