If there is one trend that is emerging in the 2010 college football season, it’s the importance of dual-threat players—specifically quarterbacks.

In an age where offense is king, a quarterback who can both throw and run is an incredibly valuable asset to any team.

It’s hard enough stopping the pass. When that same quarterback can take off and scramble for the first down or more, it’s virtually impossible to defend.

Now, not all quarterbacks have equal talent when it comes to the two skills. Some quarterbacks are much better passers who just happen to be able to run. Stanford’s Andrew Luck is a good example.

On the other hand, there are quarterbacks who are excellent runners who haven’t yet shown they have the passing skills to be a true great college “quarterback.”

Well, regardless of whether these guys can pass or not, here are the 10 best running quarterbacks in the nation.

Note: Rankings were based on 2010 numbers. Also, passing ability was not factored into the ratings. Although some of the quarterbacks mentioned can definitely sling the ball, it was their running ability that landed them on this list.
