RANKED: Greatest College Running Backs Of All-Time

28. Mike Rozier


An unheralded player coming out of high school, Rozier became a legend at Nebraska. After spending a year in JUCO, Rozier burst onto the scene with the Huskers. Splitting time his first year in Lincoln, Rozier tallied 943 yards on only 151 carries. The following season Rozier led Nebraska with 1,689 yards and added 17 total touchdowns.

His final season in the Big 8 was easily his best. Rozier rushed for 2,148 yards on 275 carries — finding the end zone 29 times. The All-American back would go on to claim the 1983 Heisman Trophy, Maxwell Award, and Walter Camp Award.
