In his weekly meeting with the media earlier this week, Mark Richt made clear that numerous freshmen would see the field Saturday night vs. Clemson, including running backs Sony Michel and Nick Chubb.

Michel and Chubb saw significant action in the backfield for the ‘Dawgs.  Chubb ran for 70 yards and a touchdown on four carries.  Michel totaled 33 yards on six carries, in addition to catching three passes for 20 yards.  Michel was in as early as the second Bulldog drive of the game.  Chubb saw his first action early in the second half.

While it’s a great problem to have for the Georgia coaches, could the depth and talent at running back be detrimental to Todd Gurley’s Heisman hopes?

Gurley got just 16 touches Saturday night.  Fortunately, when the ball was in his hands, he was making a big play.  You’d expect a running back of his caliber to get at least 20 to 25 touches per game, but for Richt and offensive coordinator Mike Bobo, they know Gurley is better served to them fresh.

“We wanted [Gurley] to have some juice at the end. And he did,” Richt told the media after the game.

If he can stay healthy and can have as big of an impact as he did Saturday night, Gurley will have no issue staying near the top of the Heisman race.  When it was time to step on the gas, the ball was in number three’s hands.

You can expect when the ‘Dawgs head into Columbia in two weeks, Gurley will be ready to go and Georgia will feed its beast.
