LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Georgia's defense is making life without Todd Gurley more than bearable.

Nick Chubb ran for 202 yards and two touchdowns and No. 10 Georgia dominated on the road for the second straight week, beating Arkansas 45-32 on Saturday.

The Bulldogs (6-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference), playing their second straight game without suspended running back Gurley, led 38-6 at halftime. They were sparked by a defense that followed up its shutout of Missouri by forcing three first-half turnovers.

Chubb had a pair of first-half touchdowns, including a 43-yard sprint, and Hutson Mason added 179 yards on 10-of-17 passing. Georgia has won five straight following a loss at South Carolina on Sept. 13.

Jonathan Williams had 108 yards rushing to lead the Razorbacks, (3-4, 0-4). They have lost 16 straight SEC games.

Arkansas' longest conference losing streak in school history is a 20-game stretch from 1940-43 when the school was in the Southwest Conference. The Razorbacks are 0-12 in the SEC under second-year coach Bret Bielema.

Chubb finished with 210 total yards of offense for Georgia, including one catch for 8 yards. The freshman, taking the place of Gurley -- who is suspended for alleged rules violations -- has 284 yards of total offense in his two games as the starter.

The Bulldogs, who lead the SEC East Division, are the first team from outside the West to win against a West opponent this season. West teams were 26-0 against outside competition entering the week.

Arkansas had fourth-quarter leads in each of the last two weeks before losing to Texas A&M and Alabama, but the outcome wasn't in doubt for long after it was overwhelmed by the Bulldogs in the first half Saturday.

After Alex Collins put the Razorbacks up 6-0 on the game's opening drive, Georgia scored 38 straight points -- capped by Dominick Sanders' 54-yard fumble return for a touchdown late in the first half.

It was the third forced turnover of the half by Georgia, which finished with four and has nine turnovers in its last two games. The Bulldogs forced five turnovers last week in a 34-0 win over Missouri, a game in which they held the Tigers to 147 yards on 43 plays, and they scored 21 points off turnovers Saturday.

Arkansas finished with 422 yards of offense, but quarterback Brandon Allen was briefly knocked out of the game following back-to-back sacks in the first half and the Razorbacks struggled to slow the Georgia pass rush until the second half. Allen finished 28 of 45 for a career-high 296 yards and three touchdowns, but he also threw two interceptions.
