Surging during acceleration & a rubbing noise

My 2008 Ninja 250 has recently begun surging while accelerating & riding at slower non-highway speeds. I have 20K miles now, and this just began. Not excessively but its defintely happening. The engine does not seem like it is surging though. Then I noticed that while I am coming up to a stop, and I pull the clutch lever in, and everything gets quiet enough, I can hear and feel a slight rubbing noise coming from around where my feet are on the pegs. I think what ever this rubbing is must be causing the surging. Just pushing the bike around I don't here or feel this rubbing so I can't identify exactly where it is coming from or what it might be. Any help or suggestions would be great. Thank You

Try checking your chain condition and tension.

Thanks DaBlue1. I changed the chain out, and that seems to have fixed all the issues.
