Georgia Bulldogs May Use Todd Gurley, Keith Marshall Together in Backfield

The Georgia Bulldogs have a nice stable of running backs that is headlined by two starts in Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall. While either man is capable of being the featured back, there have been some recent discussions that would give both men the opportunity to shine on their own or as a team.

From Anthony Dasher of UGASports.com:

If the Bulldogs can manage to get Gurley and Marshall on the backfield at the same time, that is about as scary of a rushing attack that any defensive unit will face this season.

Of course, there are multiple ways the Bulldogs could go about it.

The most conventional way for Georgia to incorporate both star running backs in the backfield would be to add a fullback that would serve as the leading blocker. This would give the team more of a wishbone formation look rather than just using some trickery and Wildcat nonsense to open up the running lanes.

No matter how they plan to utilize Gurley and Marshall together in the backfield, it is a shoe-in to be successful if they send them both out at the same time.
