Heisman HYPE Game of the Week #5
#13 Alabama at #8 Georgia
This game features two of the top running backs in the nation in Derrick Henry and Nick Chubb. This game has serious College Football Playoff implications, as Georgia looks to remain undefeated and a second loss for Alabama would essentially end their hopes of making the playoff.
Nick Chubb has a very impressive streak of 12 consecutive 100-plus yard games rushing. If he can eclipse the century mark against the Tide, he would tie Herschel Walker as Georgia’s all-time leader in consecutive 100-plus yard games. A strong performance from Chubb would help him keep pace with LSU running back Leonard Fournette in the Heisman race.
For the Crimson Tide, Derrick Henry looks to improve on his rushing history against SEC opponents, for which he is averaging only 63 yards per game for his career.
