College Football Power Rankings: The Top 25 Running Backs Heading Into Week 3
This college football season, we'll be doing weekly power rankings of the top skill-position players in the game.
Week two action was a wild ride with some of the top teams in the country facing off.
We saw a star emerge in the South Carolina-Georgia Game, we saw Trent Richardson do what he does against Penn State, we saw Virginia Tech drop a game they never should have, and we saw Ohio State make a statement against Miami.
Some running backs made some noise and some didn't.
Here are the power rankings for the top 25 running backs heading into week three.
25. Jeffery Demps, Florida
24. Washaun Ealey, Georgia
23. Kenjon Barner, Oregon
22. Edwin Baker, Michigan State
21. Vai Taua, Nevada
20. Adam Robinson, Iowa
19. Shane Vereen, Cal
18. Chris Polk, Washington
17. Bobby Rainey, Western Kentucky
16. Ed Wesley, TCU
15. Mikel Leshoure, Illinois
14. Andre Ellington, Clemson
13. Montel Harris, Boston College
2010 Stats: Rushing Yards: 195 / AVG: 4.1 / TD: 1 / Receiving Yards: 31 / AVG: 10.3 / TD: 0
After a solid showing in Boston College's week one victory over Weber State, Harris looked a little sluggish in the Eagles win over Kent State.
Harris rushed for 80 yards on 29 attempts, but failed to find the end zone.
For someone who finished last season as a top-10 back, more was expected of Harris in this one. He'll have the chance to rebound against Virginia Tech on Sept. 25.
12. Jacquizz Rodgers, Oregon State
11. Ryan Williams, Virginia Tech
10. Dion Lewis, Pittsburgh
9. Marcus Lattimore, South Carolina
8. DeMarco Murray, Oklahoma
7. Kendall Hunter, Oklahoma State
6. LaMichael James, Oregon
5. Daniel Thomas, Kansas State
4. John Clay, Wisconsin
3. Trent Richardson, Alabama
2. Noel Devine, West Virginia
1. Mark Ingram, Alabama
