Chubb, Georgia run by Louisville
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Freshman Nick Chubb ran for a career-high 266 yards and two touchdowns, and No. 13 Georgia overcame an injury to starting quarterback Hutson Mason to beat No. 20 Louisville 37-10 in the Belk Bowl.
Chubb averaged 8 yards per carry and the Bulldogs (10-3) piled up 301 yards rushing against the nation’s second-best run defense.
Mason threw for 149 yards and a touchdown before leaving with blurred vision in the second quarter with the Bulldogs ahead 20-7. He was replaced by Brice Ramsey, whose primary duty was to hand the ball off to Chubb.
Georgia’s defense came up with four turnovers, with Dominick Sanders recording two interceptions.
Redshirt freshman quarterback Kyle Bolin made his first career start for Louisville and finished 20 of 40 for 301 yards with two interceptions and one touchdown. Brandon Radcliff ran for 91 yards and a touchdown.
Foster Farms Bowl
STANFORD 45, MARYLAND 21
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Kevin Hogan threw for 189 yards and two touchdowns, Remound Wright ran for three short scores and Stanford overwhelmed Maryland in the Foster Farms Bowl.
On a chilly, windy night in Silicon Valley, the Cardinal (8-5) blew past the Terrapins with the kind of complete performance that had eluded them most of the season. Stanford outgained Maryland 414 to 222 yards and looked right at home at Levi’s Stadium, only about 11 miles from its campus.
It was the most points scored in a bowl game in Stanford history.
Maryland missed a chance for its first postseason win since 2010, when it beat East Carolina in the Military Bowl. The Terrapins (7-6) lost three of their final four games.
