UGA's Todd Gurley rushes for second touchdown of the day [GIF]

Putting the University of Georgia Bulldog’s on his back, running back Todd Gurley rushes for his second touchdown of the day, striking in from 18 yards out.

What Gurley is able to do on a weekly basis is insane. There are speedy running backs who work well outside the tackles and there are the hefty running backs whose best work comes between the tackles and in short-yard situations.

With Gurley, he’s the best of both worlds and his talents have been the biggest reason why UGA currently holds a 10-point lead over Clemson as the back has turned 14 carries into 147 yards (five yards per carry).

Dominating in the season opener, many are already looking forward to what Gurley can do in the NFL.

Some have even suggested Gurley turn down his efforts to shy away from injuries, a plan highly touted defensive lineman Jadeveon Clowney caught a lot of flack for last year.

Regardless of what Gurley chooses to do, it’s hard to see anyone else supplanting the back for top running back in the country this season, and depending on how well he plays, he could surely turn up as a Heisman candidate as the year progresses.

With nine minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, Georgia holds a 10-point lead over Clemson, 31-21.
