Georgia football rushes for 150+ yards with at least one score

The first bold prediction may not be that bold for Saturday’s game, but it’s a strong one because the Dawgs will run over Florida’s defense and earn at least 200 yards on the ground and one score.

Georgia averages 192.7 rushing yards a game on 280 attempts, which is around 4.8 yards a touch.

After three straight weeks of 200-plus yards on the ground, Kentucky held the Dawgs to 166 yards. Even though that is impressive, the Wildcats’ ability to control the clock is why Georgi didn’t have more.

However, Georgia should win the time of possession battle on Saturday. Like the Dawgs have done a few times this season, a majority of these rushing yards will come in the second half after the offensive line has worn down the Gators’ front seven a bit.

Zamir White is long overdue for a 100-yard game on the ground, and as this rivalry has shown in the past, it could be a breakout game for one of the Dawgs running backs.

Whether it’s White or James Cook, one of these guys needs to rush for 100 yards, and they must get into the endzone at least once.

Georgia’s defense will give their offense plenty of opportunities to march down the field and score, so while there will be a big emphasis on the passing game, White and Cook must do their job and find ways to tote the rock successfully.

The Dawgs will need to have success on the ground, and it starts with these two.

However, don’t be surprised if Stetson Bennett doesn’t get in on this action as well. He is a force with his legs too, and another weapon the Dawgs can use, or they can use Ladd McConkey, Brock Bowers, Arian Smith — really anyone who wants to run the ball.

Whoever rushes more in this game will be the winners, and Georgia is RBU for a reason.
