In college football, it’s no secret that offensive skill-position players such as quarterbacks and running backs usually tend to soak up most of the attention and accolades year after year. If you want proof of that, just head to your nearest convenience store and pick up one of the dozens of college football preview magazines this summer.

I doubt that you’ll see too many defensive ends donning the covers or being mentioned among the Heisman hopefuls. However, just because they don’t receive the same type of publicity as big-name offensive stars, that doesn’t mean that top notch ends aren’t just as valuable to a team’s success.

In this year’s NFL draft, seven of the 32 first-round picks were defensive ends, which goes to show you that pro franchise recognize how important pass-rushers are in today’s pass-happy era of football.

The same thing is true in college.

Most teams would call themselves lucky if they had one premier pass-rusher to showcase on defense. However, there are a select few squads who are actually spoiled enough to have two standout edge-rushers that they can unleash.

So, which teams will be making life miserable for both offensive tackles and quarterbacks this season?

Here’s a look at the most dangerous defensive end duos in college football for the 2012 season.
