24. Eddie George (1995)
One of the greatest true “workhorse” running backs in college football history, Eddie George carried the football over 600 times his junior and senior season playing for the Ohio State Buckeyes. Over those two seasons, George ran for just under 3400 yards, and tallied 36 rushing touchdowns. His 1,927 yards and 24 touchdowns rushing in 1995 remain Ohio State records to this day, and he left Columbus ranking second in school history in career rushing yards (3,768) and third in rushing touchdowns (44).
In the 1995 Heisman Trophy vote, George ended up winning the award in what would be the closest vote in history to date, over University of Nebraska quarterback Tommie Frazier.
23. Rashaan Salaam (1994)
Beating out two guys who helped lead one of the most well-respected college football programs (Kerry Collins and Ki-Jana Carter from Penn State) to the Rose Bowl, as well as a prodigious do-it-all quarterback from a little-known school (Steve McNair from Alcorn State University), Rashaan Salaam captured over 63% of the first place votes in the 1994 Heisman Trophy voting, en route to being given the award.
In his junior season with the University of Colorado, Salaam ran for 2055 yards on 298 carries — including an outing with a school-record 362 total yards from scrimmage against the University of Texas — and had 24 rushing touchdowns.
