Nick Chubb Sets UGA Bowl Rushing Record in Victory Over Louisville

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Freshman Nick Chubb ran for a career-high 266 yards and two touchdowns, and No. 13 Georgia overcame an injury to starting quarterback Hutson Mason to beat 20th-ranked Louisville 37-14 in the Belk Bowl on Tuesday night. Chubb’s rushing total was the highest ever for a Bulldogs running back in a bowl game.
Chubb averaged 8 yards per carry and the Bulldogs (10-3) piled up 301 yards rushing against the nation’s second-best run defense.
Mason threw for 149 yards and a touchdown before leaving with blurred vision in the second quarter with the Bulldogs ahead 20-7. He was replaced by Brice Ramsey, whose primary duty was to hand the ball off to Chubb.
Georgia’s defense came up with four turnovers, with Dominick Sanders recording two interceptions.
Redshirt freshman quarterback Kyle Bolin made his first career start for Louisville and finished 20 of 40 for 301 yards with two interceptions and one touchdown. Brandon Radcliff ran for 91 yards and a touchdown.
