Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(LITTLE ROCK, Ark.) — Todd Gurley who?
For the second-straight week freshman running back Nick Chubb filled in admirably for the suspended Gurley, this time rushing for 202 yards and two touchdowns to help No. 10 Georgia topple Arkansas 45-32 Saturday.
“I felt more comfortable back there in the backfield,” Chubb said. “Todd has big shoes to fill, but I’m coming in here and playing hard”
The Bulldogs (6-1, 4-1 SEC) took it to the Razorbacks early and often. After Arkansas scored the first touchdown of the game, Georgia scored the next 38 points to head into halftime with a 38-6 lead.
Arkansas (3-4, 0-4 SEC) actually outscored Georgia 28-6 in the second half thanks to three touchdown passes from Brandon Allen, but it wasn’t enough to for the Razorbacks to avoid their 16th straight SEC loss.
“That first half, we weren’t ourselves,” Bielema said. “And the only person responsible for that is me. I guarantee 100 percent; I told them that’s on me. I don’t know what we did a little bit different.”
Georgia has now won five straight.
