Last night’s incredible Rose Bowl gave us more than just a game for the ages in Georgia’s 54-48 double overtime win over the Oklahoma Sooners. It also gave us college football’s new top rushing duo.
Sony Michel and Nick Chubb combined to rush for a ridiculous 326 yards and five touchdowns in the semifinal win. In an age where sophisticated, prolific passing attacks are all the rage, their dominant performance and prolific ground game ultimately spoke louder than Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield’s aerial wizardry.

Michel, whose game-winning 27-yard scamper down the sidelines punctuated Georgia’s most exhilarating win since capturing the 1981 nationaltitle, ran for 181 while Chubb chipped in with 145. In the process, they surpassed SMU’s Eric Dickerson and Craig James, aka The Pony Express, for the most rushing yards by a pair of running back teammates in FBS history.

Michel and Chubb’s total now sits at a combined 8,284 yards, with their final performance in the national championship game on deck next week.
Some are now calling Michel and Chubb the best running back tandem ever. They have the numbers in their favor and will make a strong case if Georgia defeats Alabama in next week’s national championship game.

But a powerful argument can also be made for USC’s LenDale White and Reggie Bush, the aforementioned Dickerson and James of SMU, West Virginia’s Steve Slaton and Noel Devine, Syracuse’s Floyd Little and Larry Csonka, Arkansas’ Darren McFadden and Felix Jones, Alabama’s Trent Richardson and Mark Ingram and Oklahoma State’s Thurman Thomas and Barry Sanders as well.
Either way you slice it, Chubb and Michel have given college football fans something to cherish for years to come. And they ain’t done quite yet.
