Watch: Michel, Chubb talk about pride in playing for UGA

What Sony Michel, Nick Chubb said following title-game loss

Georgia players were emotional on the field, on the dais and in the locker room following Monday’s overtime loss in the College Football Playoff Championship Game to Alabama.

Freshman quarterback Jake Fromm described the final minutes as “a total rollercoaster,” but said the players will recover.

“At the end of the day you take it and process and go out and try to make another play,” Fromm said.

Georgia’s senior running corps of Sony Michel and Nick Chubb spoke after the game about their efforts.

“That was a great defense we went up against,” said tailback Nick Chubb, who was held to only 25 yards rushing on 18 carries. “A lot of respect for what they do. A lot of big bodies up front, makes it hard to run. But at the end of the day, it just comes down to us not executing well.”

Michel led the Bulldogs with 98 yards rushing, but for much of the game Fromm was asked to carry a heavier load than normal. Georgia had seven passes and no carries on its first two possessions Monday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
