Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline believes Georgia senior RB Nick Chubb is a "feature runner" at the next level.

Chubb ran for 151 yards on just 15 carries in their rout of Kentucky on Saturday. Pauline notes that Chubb sometimes gets lost in the shuffle of star running backs, including his teammate Sony Michel. "Make no doubt about it, if Chubb checks out medically he’s worthy of being selected in the late portion of round one and projects as a feature runner for the next level," Pauline said. The tailback will look to finish the regular season with a victory over rival Georgia Tech.

Georgia senior RB Sony Michel carries 12 times for 87 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 42-13 win against Kentucky.

Michel bounced back nicely after being bottled up for just 21 yards on nine totes in last weekend's loss at Auburn. The senior has racked up 12 rushing touchdowns through 10 games, and he has at least one score in eight of his 10 outings this season. He and Nick Chubb will look to make life tough on rival Georgia Tech next weekend in Atlanta.

Georgia senior RB Nick Chubb rushed 15 times for 151 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 42-13 victory against Kentucky.

Chubb bounced back nicely after being held to just 27 yards on 11 rushes last week at Auburn. The senior went over 1,000 yards for the season, the second time he has hit the mark in his career. He also has 12 rushing scores, just two shy of his career high set back in 2014 during his freshman campaign. He'll look to keep it rolling in the team's rivalry game at Georgia Tech next Saturday.

Georgia freshman QB Jake Fromm completed 13-of-28 passes for 184 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's 40-17 loss to Auburn.

We've been waiting to see what Fromm would be able to do in a game like this -- one where he was required to repeatedly drop back -- and the end result was none too pretty for the Bulldogs. The true freshman is a talented quarterback with a bright future ahead of him, but he just isn't developed enough at this point to be able to carry the team on his own against an elite defense.
Nov 11 - 7:16 PM

Georgia senior RB Nick Chubb rushed for 27 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries in Saturday's 40-17 loss to Auburn.

Oh goodness. Georgia prides itself on their running attack, but managed just 46 rushing yards as a team in the defeat. Prior to being shut down on Saturday, Chubb had rushed for at least 60 yards in every one of the Bulldogs' first nine games. He'll try for a rebound performance against Kentucky next weekend.

In the latest release of the CFB Playoff rankings, Alabama, Georgia, Notre Dame and Clemson remained the top four teams.

The top four squads remained static from last week's initial rankings release, as did No. 5 Oklahoma. There was some shuffling after that quintet, with TCU jumping up two spots to No. 6 and Wisconsin landing at No. 7. USC is one team to watch -- they rose six spots in this incarnation, up to No. 11, making them the second-highest ranked two-loss team on the landscape just one spot shy of Auburn. Michigan State, meanwhile, saw a whopping jump of 12 spots, as the Spartans are now sitting at No. 12, ahead of fellow Big Ten teams Ohio State (No. 13) and Penn State (No. 14).

Georgia senior RB Nick Chubb needs just 13 yards to surpass Bo Jackson for fourth among all-time leading rushers in the SEC.

Chubb currently sits at 4,291 yards, and has a chance to be just behind Herschel Walker all-time at his pace. Bo did play fours season like Chubb, although both did not have top end usage during one year. For Chubb it was due to a horrific leg injury, but he continued at a high level the next season. Chubb is among the nation's leaders in 20-plus yard runs despite having to create many yards on his own.

Georgia senior RB Nick Chubb rushed for 102 yards on 20 carries in Saturday's 24-10 win over South Carolina.

The Bulldogs were unable to truly pull away from the Gamecocks in this one, but Chubb posted a workmanlike effort to help them grind out the victory nonetheless. The 5-foot-10, 235-pound senior has been a dependent -- if largely unspectacular -- performer throughout the campaign. While he has topped 100 yards rushing just four times, he has managed at least 70 yards on the ground in eight of nine contests.
Nov 4 - 8:39 PM

Georgia junior WR Terry Godwin (undisclosed) left Saturday's game against South Carolina.

The injury appeared to be in the upper-body area, but there's no confirmation yet. We'll have more information on the severity of the injury or if he returns when it's presented.

Rivals recruiting director Mike Farrell has been impressed by the rapid acclimation of Georgia freshman T Andrew Thomas.

Farrell notes that the recruiting community had high expectations for Thomas entering the season, but even so, few thought he would become an immediate fixture on the line. ESPN forwarded the opinion two summers ago that a redshirt might be necessary for his first year on campus. That hasn't been the case for the 6-foot-5, 318-pounder, who has worked his way in as starter at right tackle following a strong August camp.

Georgia HC Kirby Smart called his team's No. 1 slot in the first CFB Playoff rankings a "distraction."

"It really means nothing right now," Smart said. It's a predictable enough bit of coach speak, though Georgia was going to land in the top four teams at one spot or another even if it wasn't at No. 1. Smart and crew will look to maintain their perfect record when they face off with South Carolina on Saturday.
Nov 1 - 6:40 PM

In the first release of the CFB Playoff rankings, Georgia, Alabama, Notre Dame and Clemson landed as the top four teams respectively.

Strength of schedule played heavily into the initial rankings, with one-loss squads Notre Dame and Clemson landing far ahead of undefeated Wisconsin (No. 9) and Miami (No. 10). Following up Clemson at No. 5 is Oklahoma. The rest of the top-ten beyond the Sooners is filled out by Ohio State, Penn State and TCU. As for action outside of the first 10 teams, Auburn ranks as the highest two-loss squad in the field, slotting in at No. 14, followed by a fellow two-loss outfit in Iowa State.

Georgia freshman RB D'Andre Swift caught three passes for 84 yards in a 42-7 win over Florida on Saturday.

Swift had 75 percent of the catches on Friday for Georgia, and 84 of freshman quarterback Jake Fromme's 101 passing yards went to him. In other words, he was the passing game on Saturday for the Bulldogs. Some of that has to do with the fact that they didn't need a passing game, but it's a positive to see the freshman able to make an impact in the passing game. It bodes well for his future when Sony Michel and Nick Chubb are playing on Sunday's next week.
Oct 28 - 7:12 PM

Georgia senior RB Nick Chubb ran for 77 yards on 13 carries with a touchdown in a 42-7 destruction of Florida on Saturday.

Chubb (5'10/235) could have had a much bigger game if Sony Michel wouldn't have selfishly ran for 137 yards himself, and if this game wouldn't have been over right around the middle of the second quarter. His touchdown was the first score of the game, a six-yard burst that gave the Bulldogs a 7-0 lead early in the first. Expect Chubb to have another big game next week against South Carolina.
