Tennessee Vs. Georgia: Keith Marshall and Todd Gurley lead Georgia's rushing attack

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Keith Marshall and Todd Gurley combined for 294 rushing yards and five touchdowns to lift the Georgia Bulldogs over Tennessee, 51-44.

Georgia running backs Keith Marshall and Todd Gurley each had individual career highs while amassing a combined 294 rushing yards and five touchdowns on 34 carries to help Georgia defeat Tennessee, 51-44, on Saturday.

Marshall rushed 10 times for 164 yards and two touchdowns while Gurley had 130 yards and three touchdowns on 24 carries.

Offensive coordinator Mike Bobo spoke with Daniel Kramer of Dogbytes Online after the game:

"I think it’s great that we’ve got two guys so there’s not a lot of pressure on one guy. One guy doesn’t have to feel like he has to do it all. We’ve got competition and consistency at that position."

Marshall and Gurley have combined for 964 rushing yards through five games this season. The Georgia offense will look to reach the 1,000-yard mark combined against the University of South Carolina next week in Columbia, S.C.

South Carolina is allowing only 77.6 yards a game on the ground and only 11.2 points a game, which ranks sixth in the FBS.
