Ole Miss Vs. Georgia: Todd Gurley among SEC leaders

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

Last week's 118-yard performance over Florida helped Georgia's freshman tailback move up to third in the SEC in rushing yards per game.

When the Georgia Bulldogs host the Ole Miss Rebels Saturday (3:30 p.m. ET on CBS) they will do so with one of the SEC's top rushers. After compiling his sixth 100-yard rushing performance (118 yards on 27 carriers) in last week's 17-9 victory over the Florida Gators, freshman tailback Todd Gurley is now ranked third in the league in rushing yards per game (92.5).

Gurley (6'1, 218 pounds) trails only Texas A&M Aggies quarterback Johnny Manziel (99.13) and Mississippi State Bulldogs' tailback LaDarius Perkins (95.25).

Last week, Gurley became the first running back to rush for more than 100 yards against Florida this season. Overall, Gurley is also second in the SEC in scoring (66 points) and all-purpose yards per game (130.0). The Tarboro, N.C. native has already been named the SEC Freshman of the Week three times this season.

The freshman has paired with another first-year player, running back Keith Marshall, to create maybe the best tandem in the country.

On Saturday, the Bulldogs will play their first home game after a month on the road. Georgia is two wins away from locking up its second straight Eastern Division title.
