When you think of a team that was four yards away from an SEC title and a spot in the national championship game, you think of a tough and strong team who can shut down an opponent’s rushing attack.
Which is why you might be surprised to learn that Georgia’s rush defense is ranked 79th in the nation, surrendering an average of 177.77 yards per game. That puts the Bulldogs’ rush defense right between New Mexico and Navy in terms of its ability to stop the run. And that means Nebraska, which has the eighth-best rushing offense in the nation, should expect some success moving the ball on the ground against Georgia.
