Louisiana-Monroe has a history of giving a scare to some SEC opponents. That will not be the case this afternoon, with the WarHawks already down 35-7 at the half in Athens against Georgia. Georgia running back Nick Chubb has started his season on a good foot, with 77 rushing yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Chubb’s touchdowns runs came from 14 yards in the first quarter and 23 yards in the second quarter, with the latter capping a 96-yard drive on just six plays. But Chubb’s start to a potential Heisman campaign is just one fo the stories this afternoon for the SEC East favorites. Virginia Transfer Greyson Lambert has been efficient in his debut with the Bulldogs. Lambert has started his afternoon completing six of eight pass attempts for 113 yards and a touchdown. Brice Ramsey has also stepped in to run the offense, completing his first two pass attempts for 51 yards and a touchdown as well.
ULM did get on the scoreboard just before the end of the first half when Garrett Smith completed a touchdown pass to Rashon Ceaser from 22 yards out. Down 28 though, mounting a comeback should be difficult for the visitors in this one.
With Georgia off to a huge start, it is likely we may not see much of Chubb the rest fo the afternoon, but the quarterbacks could be a different story before Mark Richt has seen enough.
