Georgia vs. Nebraska: Bulldogs key in on Cornhuskers run attack

Kevin Liles-US PRESSWIRE

Nebraska's tough run game, ranked seventh in the nation in 2012, might prove a tough test for the Georgia defense.

Led by quarterback Taylor Martinez and sophomore running back Ameer Abdullah, the Nebraska Cornhuskers are a force to be reckoned with when it comes to their run attack. And against a Georgia Bulldogs defense that surrendered more than 300 yards on the ground against the Alabama Crimson Tide in the SEC Championship Game, the running game could be the key to a Nebraska victory in the Capital One Bowl.

In preparation for the New Year's Day bowl, the Bulldogs are certainly preparing for one of the nation's best rush attacks, a feature even Georgia's highly-touted defense has struggled against.

"We just gave up too many big plays, too many big runs," Georgia linebacker Christian Robinson told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. "Those factor into why it may look so bad. But we should have been better and we have to be better in this last one. We need to be more consistent."

Georgia's run defense ranked 77th in the nation, giving up 177.7 yards per game to their opponents.
