Georgia has produced some incredible running backs over the years, including one of the greatest of all-time in Herschel Walker. Their latest superstar runner is sophomore Nick Chubb, who has taken college football by storm since becoming the Bulldogs’ lead back in the middle of last season.
Chubb rushed for 1,517 yards on 7.1 yards per carry last season and has been even better in 2015, rushing for 599 yards on 8.4 yards per carry through four games. Chubb’s special season has a chance to reach even greater heights on Saturday when has an opportunity to break Walker’s school record of 12 consecutive 100-yard rushing games.

Walker dominated for the Bulldogs in the early 1980s, rushing for at least 1,600 yards and 15 touchdowns in each of his three seasons on the team. Walker had just about every quality you could want in a running back – he had the size, speed, strength and vision that made stopping him nearly impossible. Chubb might not be as physically imposing as Walker, but he’s an athletic freak and has proven to be just as, if not more so, difficult to contain. Chubb’s still early in his career, but there’s a good chance that we’ll remember he and Walker as the two greatest Georgia running backs ever once his college days are over.
So, in honor of these two incredible backs and what’s at stake for Chubb on Saturday, let's take a look at some of their top highlights.
