what a team. you want to key on the run? they got andre johnson and shockey too. and their defense was just as stacked.

1 of the 2 most all-around talented college teams of all time, in my humble opinion anyway (1980 pittsburgh being the other)

Didnt Ohio St beat them?

Thomas and Sanders did not play together much at all.

The question was the best backfield so I am thinking playing at the same time.

That would be Archie Griffin and Pete Johnson of Ohio St.

They played together as a backfield.

My vote is for Glenn Davis and Doc Blanchard, Mr. Inside and Mr. Outside. Both were Heisman Trophy winners out of Army back when they were the best in college football. Followed by Charles White and Marcus Allen out of USC.

Pat White, Steve Slaton, Owen Schmitt, and in 2007 Noel Devine as the fourth

Mike Gundy was a pretty darn good QB teamed up with those two at that time, also.

They did not accomplish anything like some of those mention above.

Good but not good enough.

This probably has already been mentioned but here we go: Lydell Mitchell and Franco Harris, . . . . Mike Rozier and Roger Craig, . . . . . Craig James and Erick Dickerson, . . . . Laurence Philips and Ahman Green, I think, . . . . Dan Alexander and Corell Buckhalter, . . . . . Reggie Bush and Lendale White, . . . . . Clinton Portis and Frank Gore and Willis McGahee , . . . . . LV Whitworth and Andre Callendar, Matt Ryan's backfield mates at BC, . . . . .

my vote goes for: Darren McFadden + Felix Jones + Peyton Hillis

the 3 combined for 5,289 yards in 2007.

Never heard of Steve Slaton, Owen Schmitt or Noel Devine, that automatically eliminates them.

Must not watch much football. Slaton and Devine were very instrumental when WVU was a top 5 team a few years back. They are not even close to the best backs, but were still good for WVU.
