College football has been very interesting this year. With so many teams at one loss and still four unbeaten teams, the Championship Game is still up in the air.

With no clear No. 1 team, there is really no clear No. 1 player either. Dual threat quarterbacks have become more prevalent in college football. There are quite a few good dual threat quarterbacks.

Here is a look at the top four dual threat quarterbacks, without names. Without any bias, look at their statistics, and decide who you think is the top dual threat quarterback.

Obviously, some teams may have played weaker competition or more games, so the statistics may be slightly skewed. Here are the statistics:


Quarterback A

Passing: 160/238, 67.2 percent, 2136 yards, 22 touchdowns, eight interceptions, 17 sacks

Rushing: 150 rushes, 824 yards, 13 touchdowns


Quarterback B

Passing: 131/207, 63.3 percent, 1990 yards, 14 td, nine int, six sacks

Rushing: 205 rushes, 1417 yards, 12 td


Quarterback C

Passing: 135/198, 68.2 percent, 2038 yards, 21 td, six int, 17 sacks

Rushing: 206 rushes, 1297 yards, 17 td


Quarterback D

Passing: 166/247, 67.2 percent, 2161 yards, 17 td, six int, five sacks

Rushing: 129 rushes, 946 yards, 15 td



Realistically, all of these quarterbacks have good statistics. If you want a mostly rushing quarterback, you could choose QB B. If you want the most statistically impressive, choose QB C.

Any of these quarterbacks would be good choices to have on your team or to lead your team to a National Championship.

Quarterback C has played 11 games, while the rest of these quarterbacks have only played ten, so that skewed his statistics slightly.

Overall, I would say Quarterback C is the best dual threat quarterback. He has the most accurate passing with the fewest interceptions. While he doesn't have the best rushing statistics, he has a very good rushing ability.

Quarterback C has also scored the most touchdowns. Obviously, if you want to win, you have to score.

Who is your top dual threat quarterback?

**Although you can probably figure out who each quarterback is, I will post as a comment on this article on Thursday afternoon. I want people to vote without any bias.**
