Michigan Football: Power Ranking the Top 5 RBs the Wolverines Will Face in 2012

Where does Rex Burkhead stack up among the top running backs the Michigan Wolverines will face this season?

The Michigan Wolverines used to be recognized for their physical running game and pro-style offense geared around their talented running backs.

This season, the Wolverines will have to face several of the nation's best running backs with national powers like Alabama, Ohio State and Michigan State on the schedule for 2012.

One piece of good news for Michigan heading into the upcoming season is that it will not have to face the best running back in the Big Ten, Wisconsin's Montee Ball, who was a Heisman Trophy finalist last year.

Michigan's front four on defense has been a position of concern throughout fall camp after losing three starters from their 2011 squad that went 11-2 and defeated Virginia Tech in the Allstate Sugar Bowl, which could definitely help the five running backs in this slideshow rack up some big numbers on the ground against the Wolverines.
