It was an odd game for the running backs. Alvin Kamara ended up with the most touches (18), compared to Jalen Hurd’s 13. Butch Jones said it was a lower-body injury that kept Hurd out late, though the CBS broadcast reported that Hurd wasn’t receiving much medical attention on the sideline, and said it was likely a coaches decision during the game. Hurd had a humiliating moment early in the game when he caught a pass and let up before the end zone, leading to a Georgia player decking him right before the goal line and forcing a fumble. He helped atone for that with a touchdown reception later in the game, but that first earlier instance was highly uncharacteristic for him. Kamara also had a fumble, but was mostly effective on the ground (16 carries, 62 yards), and added a nice touchdown grab of his own.
