The 20 best running back duos in SEC history: A whole lotta yards

Over the years, SEC fans have watched some of the best running back duos in college football. Hey, why stop with one quality running back when you can have two?

GN takes a look at the elite running back pairings that have dominated on the ground in SEC history.

This list is limited to running backs. So you won’t find combinations like Auburn in 2010 (Cam Newton and Michael Dyer) or Florida in 2007 (Tim Tebow and Percy Harvin) that include a quarterback.

The list also doesn’t include distinguished duos such as Kevin Long and Clarence Williams (South Carolina, 1975) and Greg Hill and Rodney Thomas (Texas A&M, 1992), who represented current SEC schools in years before they joined the conference.

Our criteria was a mix of production and sheer talent.

20. Kentucky, 2016

The Wildcats were in the hunt for the SEC East title in 2016, and at the heart of the resurgence were running backs Stanley “Boom” Williams and Benny Snell Jr., who rushed for a combined 2,261 yards and 20 touchdowns.

Williams rushed for 1,170 yards and seven scores while gaining an average of 6.8 yards per rush. Snell gained 1,091 yards and found the end zone 13 times.

The Wildcats remained in the hunt for the division until the final two weeks of the season. Still, Kentucky made its first bowl game in six years. In Lexington, make no mistake: That’s a solid season.
