ATHENS - Two of the most famous Georgia Bulldogs in history visited UGA’s new football facility on Wednesday. 

Nick Chubb and Sony Michel, who signed with the Bulldogs in 2014 and took the program to its first national title game in decades, visited the new football facility at Georgia. The duo left Athens as perhaps the top one-two punch at running back in college football history. 

Chubb ended his career at UGA with 4,769 career yards and 44 rushing touchdowns. Michel concluded his career with 3,638 rushing yards and 33 touchdowns. Michel was also responsible for 621 yards receiving and another six touchdowns catching the ball.

The duo’s decision to stay at UGA after the 2016 season is thought of as one of the main moments in Kirby Smart’s tenure at Georgia. Chubb, Michel and several other rising seniors announced their decision to return heading into the Liberty Bowl with TCU in 2016. 

Since that announcement, the Bulldogs have played in three College Football Playoff National Championship Games - including a blowout win over TCU to conclude the 2022 season. 

Chubb and Michel have had success in the NFL as well. Michel was drafted No. 31 overall in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft with the Patriots, the franchise he won Super Bowl LIII with at the conclusion of the 2018 NFL season. Michel added a second Super Bowl win with the Rams after the 2021 season in Super Bowl LVI in at SoFi Stadium

Chubb has amassed 6,341 rushing yards during his five-year career with the Cleveland Browns. He signed a three-year $36.6M contact with the Browns, which made made his salary go up nearly ten fold.
