Dawgs Beat SU; Eyes Turn to Bama

ATHENS - Georgia football team defeated Southern University 48-6 Saturday afternoon in a rainy Sanford Stadium.

The Bulldogs (4-0, 2-0) used a steady round game to overmatch the Jaguars (2-2, 2-0). Sophomore running back Nick Chubb finished the game with 131 yards rushing and two touchdowns on 15 carries. That marks the 12th-straight game that Chubb has rushed for over 100-yards, tying Herschel Walker for the most consecutive 100-yards games rushing by a Georgia Bulldog. Sony Michel added 75 of his own yards, including two touchdown runs. 

The Bulldogs finished the game with 263 yards rushing and 534 yards overall. Quarterback Greyson Lambert finished nine for 10 for 146 yards and two touchdowns. Fellow quarterback Brice Ramsey added 125 yards, going 11 for 14. 

Georgia's defense swarmed to the ball all day allowing the Jaguars only 184 total yards. Tim Kimbrough led the Bulldogs with five total tackles. Malkom Parrish blocked a Southern punt early in the first quarter. 

Head coach Mark Richt was happy with his team's performance and thinks the team has plenty to build off of after the game.

"We'll find out what we did wrong," Richt said. " We'll correct it and get better at what we do. We have so much to get better on and it's a task we take very seriously. Our goal is to get better on a daily basis. It sounds boring, but that's football. Football is a game of repetition. If you continuously rep it well at practice, hopefully you'll execute it well in a game." 

Both teams started the game stalling on their first drives, but it was the Bulldogs to score first. Nick Chubb took a screen pass from Lambert 25-yards to the endzone following a host of blockers. The drive was set up by a blocked punt from Malkom Parrish. 

The Bulldogs forced another three and out from the Jaguars on their next drive and quickly scored another touchdown. After several big catches from senior receiver Malcolm Mitchel, Sony Michel drug a handful of Southern defenders into the endzone to punch in the second score of the game from eight yards out. 

After heading to the locker rooms at halftime up 20-6, the Bulldogs came out pounding the ball in the second-half. Georgia rode its star running back Chubb all the way down the field, punching the ball in from nine yards. 

Great defense by the Bulldogs on Southern's next possession led to good position on the field for the offense and it wasn't wasted. Greyson Lambert hit Malcolm Mitchell from 23-yards out for his second passing touchdown of the day.
