Do Aggies Have Top 10 Running Back Room?

Athlon Magazine recently released their top 10 running back groups in college football.

The Texas A&M Aggies will look to finally make that step to the next level in the SEC this season as they hope to compete for an SEC championship

To do so, however, their offense will need to continue to be productive, especially running the ball as they iron out the kinks with their quarterback situation. However, they will have to replace running back Isaiah Spiller, who was taken in the NFL draft. 

While losing Spiller is far from ideal, the Aggie running back room has the talent to replace him in 2022. Athlon Magazine also agrees with that as they ranked the Aggies' running back room as the No. 10 running back room in college football. 

Leading the way for the Aggies out of the backfield will be the talented Devon Achane. Achane would see playing time in all 12 games last season, making sure to not waste a single opportunity. He would rush for 910 yards and nine touchdowns while averaging a whopping seven yards per carry.
