After being limited to two carries for three yards against Alabama in the SEC Championship Game, freshman running back Keith Marshall is likely to play a much larger role in the Capital One Bowl versus Nebraska, according to Marc Weiszer of DogBytesOnline.

Offensive coordinator Mike Bobo told Weiszer that the team has a "big plan" for Marshall against Nebraska.

The Nebraska defense gave up 539 rushing yards to Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship Game, including eight rushing touchdowns. Three of those rushing touchdowns occurred on 50-plus yard runs.

Marshall has four runs of over 50 yards this season that went for touchdowns. Marshall is second on the team in rushing as he's carried the ball 109 times for 723 yards and eight touchdowns.

Todd Gurley leads the Bulldogs with 1,260 yards and 16 touchdowns this season.

As a team, Georgia is averaging 184.2 yards per game on the ground, which ranks 42nd in the country.
