Athlon's list of top running back units in the country features SEC teams in the top two spots

By  | 

Athlon Sports has released its list of the top 25 best running back units in the country heading into the season. Depth, production, talent, projected output and competition were all factored in the rankings.

The Georgia Bulldogs take the top spot on the list. They say the Todd Gurley-Keith Marshall duo is the best in college football and expect them to rush for 1,000 yards in 2013.

Coming in behind Georgia is Alabama. Even with Eddie Lacy gone, Athlon Sports says the Tide still have serveral options with T.J. Yeldon leading the way. He's backed up by Derrick Henry, Jalston Fowler and Dee Hart.

Texas A&M, LSU and Mississippi State appear in the top 25. The Aggies rank No. 5, the Tigers rank No. 14 and the Bulldogs close out the list at 25.
