From almost the moment he stepped on the field for Georgia, Bulldog fans knew running back Nick Chubb was special. In the proceeding years, he’s emerged as one of the most dynamic backs in Georgia history, both before and after his gruesome knee injury suffered in 2015.

Early in today’s game against Auburn, Chubb continued to climb his way up UGA’s record books. Early in the first quarter, Chubb became the fifth Bulldog to surpass 3,000 career rushing yards. Before him, only Herschel Walker, Todd Gurley, Garrison Hearst, and Lars Tate had reached that milestone before.
Just a short while after reaching the 3,000 yard mark, Chubb surpassed Tate (3,017 career yards) for fourth place on the all-time list. While Walker stands alone with 5,269 yards, Chubb has a good shot of surpassing both Hearst (3,232) and Gurley (3,285) before the end of the year.
