Georgia’s championship season has been built on a running game that at times has five players in the mix.
That’s one area that SEC Network analysts Marcus Spears and Greg McElroy see as a defining key to the Rose Bowl College Football Playoff semifinal matchup with Oklahoma.
“I don’t think this game will be close if Georgia runs the ball like we’re used to seeing them run the ball,” they said.
Sony Michel and Nick Chubb each have 13 rushing touchdowns, and Chubb has 1,175 rushing yards, just ahead of Michel’s 948. Freshman D’Andre Swift has also been a consistent contributor with 597 yards and three TDs.
Georgia has rushed for 200 yards in every game but Notre Dame (185) and the first Auburn game (46) as the Bulldogs are second in the SEC in rushing at 263.5 yards per game.
