Georgia’s Nick Chubb ran for 53 yards Saturday in a 38-7 victory over Georgia Tech to increase his career total to 4,522, good for fourth place on the all-time list.
Webb also broke a school record with his 31st career touchdown on a 2-yard drive in the second quarter. He added a 32nd career touchdown on a 20-yard run in the fourth quarter. The record had been owned by Zac Stacy, who had 30 touchdown runs for Vanderbilt from 2009-12.
