Aaron Murray's college career is over.

The Georgia quarterback suffered a torn ACL in his left knee against Kentucky on Saturday and will undergo surgery. His mother announced the injury Sunday on Facebook. Aaron Murray then took to his Twitter account.

"Thank you for all the prayers over the past few hours," tweeted Murray. "Gonna come back stronger than ever! Dawg for life. Truly love you all. #GoDawgs."

This is just a terrible way for a very good college career to come to an end. Murray finishes his career as Georgia's career leader in just about every major passing statistic, and he started in 52 straight games, leading the Bulldogs to a 35-17 record in those starts and two SEC East division championships.

He also becomes the fourth offensive starter that the Bulldogs have lost to a torn ACL this season.

Murray finishes his career with 13,166 yards and 121 touchdowns. Hutson Mason, who replaced Murray against Kentucky, will start the final two games of Georgia's season.
