Before hitting the NFL, college football players showcase their unbelievable skills. When it comes to accumulating yards, running backs are important for those crucial plays. Without them, quarterbacks would have to struggle a bit more on the field. Here are some of the best running backs in college football history.
Troy Davis was a powerhouse on the Iowa State Cyclones. The Miami native holds school records for most rushing yards in a career (4,382), a season (2,185), and a game (378). If that’s not enough, Davis holds the top three spots for most rushing yards in a single game. In 2007, Davis was inducted into the Iowa State Hall of Fame. Nine years later, he was placed in the College Football Hall of Fame.
