Murray, now with the SEC Network, has been a vocal fan of Bennett’s for some time now. This offseason he predicted that the sixth-year senior could “flirt with 35 touchdowns” in 2022.

After the first weekend of college football Murray ranked the top-five performing quarterbacks of Week 1in a video with The Volume.
