A list of the best college running back for the 2013-14 season. For many college football teams, the running back position is very important. If they have a meh running back, then things could implode quickly. Even a mediocre college back can carry his team to glory. But a top, All American running back? Then the sky is the limit. A dominating running back can lead teams to heights unheard of, and not only a crystal ball be added to a school's trophy cabinet. So who are the best running backs of this year's college football season? Well, that depends primarily on your point of view. Running backs aren't as important as they used to be in the Three Yards and a Cloud of Dust days due to the spread offense, however, that doesn't mean that they aren't integral parts of their team. Just ask Boston College where they'd be without Andre Williams. The running back rushed for over 2,000 yard and was a Heisman trophy finalist. If you take him off that Boston College team, then you have a team where the basement was certainly the limit.

Other running backs on this list include another Heisman finalist, Tre Mason of Auburn and other top notch backs like Ka'Deem Carey, Bishop Sankey and Tyler Gaffney. Any of the ball carriers listed here could propel any school from mediocrity to the top of the heap, which will not only make them heroes to their alumni base, but could put them in the upper reaches of college football history.

This is the list of the best of best college running back of the 2013/14 season. Vote or re-rank this list according to how you deem it to be fit. Remember, only rank the players based on THIS season.
