Georgia vs. Florida: Running game is key for Bulldogs

A lack of a rushing attack could spell the demise of Georgia.

If Georgia is going to beat Florida on Saturday, it will need a better running game. At least, that's what Team Speed Kills thinks, as the blog broke down the Georgia rushing attack.

Lately, the Bulldogs have not been as successful on the ground as usual, which the bloggers chalk up to a lack of big plays.

Without some better production, Florida will stay undefeated.

Georgia's offensive line has to have a better game this weekend than last, full stop. If it doesn't then Evans and Elam will be able to stay back more for passing coverage, something that will hurt Murray's chances through the air.

The Georgia rushing attack is led by Todd Gurley, who has 622 yards and nine touchdowns this season. Keith Marshall is the team's second-leading rusher with 488 yards and five touchdowns.

In the team's last game, a win over Kentucky, the Bulldogs had just 77 yards on the ground. They held on for a 29-24 victory.
