If form holds true this weekend when the Oregon Ducks host the Stanford Cardinal at Autzen Stadium (5 p.m. PST, ABC), running backs Kenjon Barner and Stepfan Taylor will be highly visible.
Oregon's Barner and Stanford's Taylor are two of the top running backs in the nation. Barner is currently ranked No. 6 in rushing yards with 1,360 (6.8 average yards per carry), and Taylor is ranked No. 19 with 1,061 (4.7 average yards per carry). For the record, Johnathan Franklin of UCLA is currently ranked No. 7 with 1,270 yards, and Arizona's Ka'Deem Carey is No. 4 (and leads the conference) with 1,381 yards.
If you are a budding running back reading this now, you should watch this game on Saturday. You just might see an RB clinic.
Barner leads Taylor so far this season in both total yards and average yards per carry. Let's look at how they compare in other categories.
