Chubb is one of the top running backs in the country and one of the biggest stars in college football.
Below is everything that you need to know about Chubb:
1. Nick Chubb, when healthy, is an elite running back
His freshman year, and the first half of his sophomore campaign proved this, but Chubb is one of the best running backs in the country. In his first 13 starts, from Missouri in 2014 to Alabama in 2015, Chubb rushed for 2,068 yards with 19 touchdowns.
2. Nick Chubb has dominated nonconference Power 5 foes
Chubb has always put his biggest and best numbers in major nonconference games for Georgia. In eight games against Georgia Tech, Clemson, TCU, North Carolina, Notre Dame and Louisville, Chubb has rushed for 1,033 yards. And against Alabama in 2015, he ran for 146 yards and was the only running back to rush for more than 100 yards against the Crimson Tide that year.
3. Nick Chubb has come back from a devastating knee injury that happened at Tennessee
After the Alabama game his sophomore year, he suffered a season-ending left knee injury against Tennessee on his first carry of the next game. Chubb missed the rest of his sophomore season but did return for the beginning of his junior year.
4. Nick Chubb and Sony Michel have had huge seasons
Chubb and Sony Michel have each had special seasons, but against Auburn in the November regular-season game, the two struggled mightily as Georgia ran for just 46 yards. The duo helped Georgia rush for 238 yards in the SEC Championship Game rematch vs. Auburn, and should feast on an average Oklahoma rush defense. On the season, Chubb and Michel have combined for 2,143 yards and 26 rushing touchdowns.
5. Nick Chubb is a workout warrior
Chubb’s workout routine and videos are the stuff of legends. He’s been seen squatting over 600 pounds and performing a number of other feats of strength in the weight room. On the season, Chubb finished third in the SEC in rushing, behind only Kentucky’s Benny Snell and LSU’s Derrius Guice, and both of them were the primary ball carriers for their respective teams.
Chubb has split carries with Michel and freshman D’Andre Swift over the course of the year.
