Georgia football: 5 things to watch in 2016

While all the talk is focused on Tennessee being the favorite to come out of the SEC East and having a shot at the College Football Playoff, the Georgia Bulldogs still believe they have a good shot at winning the conference for the first time since 2005.

They have one of the most talented running backs in the country in Nick Chubb, who returns and looks to pick up right where he left off before his horrific knee injury nearly cost him his career.
