JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Georgia and Nebraska are playing with backup quarterbacks - all the more reason to focus on two of the top running backs in the country.
No. 23 Georgia's Todd Gurley and Nebraska's Ameer Abdullah could make the Gator Bowl a ground-and-pound celebration on New Year's Day.
Gurley, a 6-foot-1, 232-pound sophomore, has 903 yards rushing and 10 touchdowns despite missing three-plus games with an ankle injury. He needs 93 yards on the ground against Nebraska on Wednesday to become the third player in school history with consecutive 1,000-yard seasons. Herschel Walker (1980-83) and Knowshon Moreno (2007-08) also accomplished the feat.
Abdullah, a 5-foot-9, 190-pound junior, has 1,568 yards and eight touchdowns. Only three Cornhuskers - Mike Rozier, Ahman Green and Lawrence Phillips - have enjoyed better single seasons than Abdullah.
