Georgia’s Nick Chubb eclipsed the 4,000 career rushing yards with a carry against Vanderbilt on Saturday at Vanderbilt Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee.
Chubb is the eighth player in Southeastern Conference history to rush for 4,000 career yards. He joins some elite company with Georgia’s Herschel Walker (5,259), Arkansas’ Darren McFadden (4,590), LSU’s Kevin Faulk (4,557), Auburn’s Bo Jackson (4,303), Florida’s Errict Rhett (4,163) and LSU’s Dalton Hilliard (4,050) and Charles Alexander (4,035).
After Saturday’s game at Vanderbilt, the Bulldogs and Chubb have six regular-season games remaining, plus a bowl game and possibly the SEC Championship game in Atlanta. The Bulldogs are off to a 5-0 start.
The 5-foot-10, 225-pound Chubb recorded his third 100-yard game this season against Vanderbilt. His previous two 100-yard games were against Samford and Tennessee. Based on Chubb’s performances this season along with having at least seven games left, he should, at least, past McFadden as the SEC second all-time rusher behind Walker.
