College football is deep with great running backs this upcoming season. One of the best in NCAA football right now is the Tigers' Travis Etienne.
In Athlon Sports' Top 60 Running Back Rankings, the Tigers' player is listed at No. 2.
Etienne comes in just ahead of Arizona State's Eno Benjamin (No. 3) and just behind Jonathan Taylor (No. 1) at Wisconsin.
Here's why: While most of the attention on Clemson’s national title run focused on a standout defensive line and quarterback Trevor Lawrence, Etienne compiled a prolific 2018 season. He played in all 15 games for the Tigers and rushed for 1,658 yards and 24 touchdowns on just 204 attempts. Additionally, Etienne averaged 8.1 yards per carry and tied for fourth nationally with seven rushes of 40 yards or more last season.
