Independently covering the OVC since 2011. To learn about us, click the button below.

You’ve already ranked the teams, and the quarterbacks in the league — now we’re getting down to the running backs.

As a note — the running backs listed below are my best guess for starting RB this season for each team. Where two are listed I expect both to be used regularly.

We’re also changing up the poll this time — You can vote for up to three RB’s below, but unlike the old polls (which I had to update manually) this will provide instant feedback on your vote.

Below the poll, I’ve listed statistics and a few notes for each rusher, as a refresher.
