Honestly, plenty of Georgia weapons in the running game could have made it on here. Daijun Edwards is the best overall pure running back, as he has 70 carries for 442 yards and seven touchdowns. Kendall Milton has 27 carries for 282 yards, part of 347 all-purpose yards and five touchdowns from scrimmage.
Branson Robinson, meanwhile, has 43 carries for 254 yards and a touchdown. All three players have better averages on the ground than Kenny McIntosh. However, McIntosh is the most utilized weapon overall, so he is the running back to make the list among all four players.
For the year, McIntosh has 68 carries for 332 yards and six touchdowns. Meanwhile, he has 29 catches for 266 yards and a touchdown, giving him 598 yards from scrimmage, over 100 yards clear of any running back. Simply put, he’s the best all-around weapon they have.
Stopping Georgia’s run is obviously going to be crucial for Tennessee football, but McIntosh makes that the most difficult because of how they also have to account for him in the passing game. They’ve been good on running backs, even those catching passes out of the backfield, for the most part this year, but McIntosh is a different story.
