Georgia junior running back Todd Gurley hopes to be a strong Heisman Trophy contender this season, and he hopes to start that run with a lot of big runs against Clemson Saturday in Athens.
Last season Gurley rushed for 989 yards and 10 touchdowns despite missing over three games with an ankle injury. He first hurt the ankle in the season opener against Clemson. Even hobbled and limited to just 12 carries, he still blitzed the Tiger defense for 154 yards.
Georgia likes to be balanced on offense, but with a new quarterback, the Tigers likely can expect a lot of Gurley, with some Keith Marshall mixed in.
Tuesday Clemson defensive coordinator along with defensive tackle Grady Jarrett and safety Robert Smith talked about plans for slowing down Gurley and the Georgia offense.
