Georgia's Chubb cracks century mark again, confusion over record ensues

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Nick Chubb rushed for more than 100 yards for the 13th consecutive game in Georgia's 38-10 loss to Alabama in Athens on Saturday. But immediately after Chubb extended his 100-yard-game streak, confusion ensued as to whether the mark was the Georgia school record.

The school itself sent out conflicting information. The Bulldogs' official website ran a headline (since corrected) reading: "Chubb breaks record, Dawgs fall to Tide," while at the same time, one of their official Twitter handles tweeted this:

So where does Chubb, who rushed for 146 yards including an 83-yard touchdown, stand in terms of the record?

Herschel Walker rushed for more than 100 yards in 13 consecutive games. However, one of those was a bowl game. The NCAA did not count bowl game statistics during Walker's playing career, but Georgia's policy does not have to match the NCAA's standard.

Of course, Chubb's 13-game streak includes his Belk Bowl performance against Louisville, so all things being equal, it appears the Georgia backs are indeed tied.
