10:08 AM ET 07.12 | Frank Beamer has what one report is considering the best running back duo in the nation with Darren Evans and Ryan Williams. It's not often a team can count on two 1,000-yard rushers, but Virginia Tech can. Evans ran for 1,265 yards and 11 TDs as a freshman in 2008. But he blew out his knee and missed the 2009 season. No matter -- that just opened the door for Williams, who ran for 1,655 yards and 21 touchdowns. Williams had 10 100-yard games and had a carry of at least 30 yards in nine games and at least 40 yards in six games. Evans is expected to be 100 percent this fall, giving the Hokies one of the nation's best backfields.

Who?

This guys have had better freshman years statistically. Evans>Ingram and Williams>Richardson. I have been saying they are a close second. With Tyrod Taylor, Va Tech has the best running backfield.

Fastest RB duo Demps and Rainey, best RB duo not so much.

Except Rainey's in the slot now.

Demps has put on some meat without slowing down at all. This taken before summer work outs:


Not so much "scat" anymore.

forgot the new ROE.

Bama has the best backfield, and Oregon is 2nd. LaMichael James with Knjon Barner as his backup, and we just brought in Lache Seastrunk & Dontae Williams. This argument is better to have after the season.

UF's slot receiver is half WR and half RB.

James is good but not as good as Williams

Ryan Williams 293 1655 5.6 66 (TD) 21
Darren Evans 287 1265 4.4 50 11 '08 stats
LaMichael James 230 1546 6.7 60 (TD) 14
