Georgia running back D'Andre Swift passed the 1,000-yard rushing mark in the second quarter of the 2018 SEC Championship Game Saturday. It is the sophomore's first 1,000-yard season. 

Swift entered the game as Georgia's leading rusher with 962 rushing yards. After breaking the mark, Swift scampered 11 yards for a touchdown to give Georgia a 21-7 lead over Alabama.

Swift is the only running back on the team to pass 1,000 rushing yards this season. Last year, Georgia had two 1,000-yard rushers in Nick Chubb and Sony Michel.
