Georgia football rushes for 200-plus yards and sees multiple backs score
Georgia football hasn’t had the best results running the ball, but it’s more that it’s taking longer to wear out their opponents up front.
Through nine games, the Dawgs average 190 yards on the ground and 5.0 yards a touch. While the Vols average over 217 yards, Georgia hasn’t had to lean nearly as hard on their rush attack to get the job done as it has in the past.
We’ve seen Zamir White finally rush for 100 yards against Florida, and James Cook continues to grow as a back, but now it’s time for them to leave their mark on the Georgia program like Sony Michel and Nick Chubb did.
Georgia fans have gotten spoiled with many running backs stepping up and being dominant — Chubb, Michel, Todd Gurley, etc.
Now it’s not that White and Cook aren’t dominant. They have just shared the load more than the previous backs, making it hard to put up more significant numbers. Kendall Milton is working on staying healthy, and it’s just been kind of lackluster from this room.
They are a talented group of guys, but it’s past due to step up and show the world that Georgia is still RBU. Georgia’s offensive line needs to make a stand this week too.
The Dawgs need to win the battle up front against the Vols and establish a running game early. This week is the one where it busts wide open, and Georgia rushes for their fourth 200-yard game on the season.
White earns his second 100-plus yard game, and James Cook gets close. This week the Dawgs show the Vols who the better running team is, and this offensive line emerges from the ashes to eliminate the last known weakness Georgia may possess.
