13. Earl Campbell, RB, Texas (1974-77)
This bruising running back left countless Southwest Conference defenders face-down on the turf or grasping at air. Campbell left Austin with 4,443 rushing yards and won the 1977 Heisman Trophy with a 1,744-yard, 18-TD season for the 11–1 Longhorns. Even in the Horns’ 38–10 Cotton Bowl loss to Notre Dame that cost them the national title, Campbell was a bright spot, rushing for 116 yards.
