The Big 12 was home to some of the best running backs in college football last season. Lache Seastrunk (Baylor), Charles Sims (West Virginia) and Brennan Clay (Oklahoma) highlighted a special group.
However, all three, and many more, are gone now.
Still, several key running backs like Desmond Roland (Oklahoma State) and Malcolm Brown (Texas) return. There will also be some new faces like West Virginia's Rushel Shell, a Pitt transfer.
