Cleveland Browns rookie running back Nick Chubb will be rooting for his Georgia Bulldogs against the hated Alabama Crimson Tide during Saturday’s SEC Championship Game.

With a spot in the College Football Playoffs on the line, Georgia heads into this on as major underdogs against he undefeated and No. 1 ranked Crimson Tide.

But if Georgia were to come out on top, Chubb himself would add play-calling duties to his list of accomplishments. At the very least, that’s the word from Browns offensive coordinator and Bama grad Freddie Kitchens.

Wouldn’t that be all sorts of fun?

Though, play calling has not been an issue for Chubb and the Browns during their current two-game winning streak. The team is averaging 31.5 points during that span and Chubb has tallied 337 total yards in those two games.

If Georgia does indeed win Saturday, we’re going to see Chubb touch the ball 50-plus times the following day. You can bet the house on that.
