College Football's Hardest Hits (video)


1. Rey Maualuga, USC

USC Trojan linebacker Rey Maualuga tracks down the UCLA quarterback, and with the help of a teammate, absolutely destroys the poor signal caller.

2. Daniel Sepulveda, Baylor

This one gets bumped up a few spots because it's, you know, a punter. As that nation's best punter, Daniel Sepulveda was a fearsome weapon in the kicking game. But this poor little North Texas return man found out quickly that the 6'3" 220-pounder isn't scared of contact.

3. Major Wright, Florida

Florida safety Major Wright was a big hitter in college. And on the game's biggest stage, the 2008 BCS National Championship against Oklahoma, he delivered this crushing blow to Sooners' wideout Manny Johnson.

4. Stanford Samuels, Florida State

The Florida State-Miami rivalry is always heated, but on a rainy day in Tallahassee, FSU's Stanford Samuels made sure Miami wideout Roscoe Parrish knew exactly how he feels about "The U."

5. Rodrick Johnson, Oklahoma State

During a Texas vs. the USA All-Star showcase, Oklahoma State's Rodrick Johnson meets Lambuth's Allen Ervin not so kindly in the hole near the line of scrimmage.

6. Quinton Coryatt, Texas A&M

Everyone remembers this de-cleater by Texas A&M heavy-hitter Quinton Coryatt on a poor, defenseless TCU wide receiver.

7. Brandon Flowers, Virginia Tech

Virginia Tech's Brandon Flowers has blossomed into one of the NFL's top cornerbacks for the Kansas City Chiefs. This poor Kent State pass catcher would likely agree.

This Eric Berry hit on Knowshon Moreno was so good, we needed to see it 12 times in a row.

11. Jordan Futch, Miami

Miami's Travis Benjamin reverses his field after catching a Georgia Tech punt. And Jordan Futch gets a free shot on one unsuspecting Yellow Jacket would-be tackler.

12. Junior Rosegreen, Auburn

It's hard to tell, but Auburn's Junior Rosegreen has completely knocked-out Georgia wide receiver Reggie Brown. Completely.

13. Quintin Moore, Oklahoma State

Oklahoma State safety Quintin Moore has a clean shot on one Arkansas State receiver - and there is no way he misses the opportunity.

14. Daydrion Taylor, Michigan

Michigan safety Daydrion Taylor tracks Penn State tight end Bob Stephenson and delivers an absolutely crushing hit down the sideline.

15. Kevin Barnes, Maryland

Maryland cornerback Kevin Barnes reads this Cal Golden Bears play perfectly. Cal's Jahvid Best had no idea what was coming his way.

16. Kam Chancellor, Virginia Tech

Florida State's Warren Ball actually makes a pretty nice catch and run down the sideline - until he meets Virginia Tech safety Kam Chancellor.
