Georgia scored two touchdowns on its first three snaps, including an 83-yard touchdown run by Nick Chubb, and the No. 9 Bulldogs rolled past Charleston Southern 55-9 on Saturday.

Hutson Mason played only the first half and threw three touchdown passes, including two to Chris Conley. Mason's 35-yard scoring pass to Conley came on Georgia's first play following a fumble recovery by Ramik Wilson. Mason added touchdown passes of 19 yards to Justin Scott-Wesley and 23 yards to Conley.

Chubb recorded his sixth straight 100-yard game, with 113 yards rushing and two touchdowns on only nine carries in the first half for Georgia (9-2). The Bulldogs, who have completed their Southeastern Conference schedule, would land in the SEC championship game if Missouri, which played Tennessee on Saturday night, loses one of its final two games.

Charleston Southern (8-4), hoping for a spot in the FCS playoffs, was held to 211 total yards.
