ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - When Justin Scott-Wesley goes out for a pass, everyone has to do things a little quicker.

Even Georgia's quarterback. Aaron Murray has learned to hurry his footwork a bit to make sure he takes advantage of his speedy receiver.

Scott-Wesley showed off his credentials as a former state high school track champion in the Bulldogs' last game. He got free behind the secondary, hauled in the pass from Murray, and was gone on an 85-yard touchdown that sealed a crucial 41-30 victory over South Carolina.

But it's Scott-Wesley's development as an all-around receiver that has ninth-ranked Georgia believing he'll be a significant contributor the rest of the way, especially after Malcolm Mitchell went down with a season-ending knee injury.

The Bulldogs (1-1) host North Texas (2-1) on Saturday.
