The Georgia Bulldogs kicked off their 2016 campaign on a high note, with a victory over North Carolina in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game on opening weekend. Star running back Nick Chubb, who was returning from a devastating knee injury that ended his 2015 season, was a big part of the team’s success.
Chubb finished his return to the gridiron with 222 yards and two touchdowns, while averaging 6.9 yards per carry.
The performance was so impressive that Chubb inspired a Georgia pastor’s sermon the following day.
Atlanta pastor Dr. E. Dewey Smith Jr. of The House of Hope commented on Chubb’s return to the field during his passionate sermon on Sunday morning. Video of his sermon was captured on social media.
People have always said that college football is a religion in the South and this further proves that point.
Like Pastor Smith, the rest of the UGA faithful will be singing Chubb’s praises if he continues to chug along week after week to lead No. 9-ranked Georgia to the promised land.
The Bulldogs return to action this weekend against Nicholls State in Athens.
