Who Are Most Hyped Running Backs in College Football?

Who Are Most Hyped Running Backs in College Football?

It’s been six years since a running back was as close as runner-up for the Heisman Trophy, though that could change in 2023.

Between venerable veterans, such as Michigan’s Blake Corum and up-and-coming backfield stars, such as Nicholas Singleton of Penn State or Raheim Sanders of Arkansas, there’s no shortage of backfield talent in college football this fall.

With college football’s start in late August marking the standard rush back to U.S. betting sites, USBettingReport.com utilized Google Trends to find the college football running backs with the most search interest for the 2023 Season. The results were taken from April 25 through July 25.

Auburn RB Jarquez Hunter was removed due to his potential suspension pushing his search interest up.

Big Ten Dominates College Football Hype List

Unsurprisingly, the most hyped running back in college football is the man that was named as a unanimous All-American and the Ameche-Dayne Running Back of the Year in 2022.

Those accolades came about after Corum ripped through opposing defenses, finishing his junior season with 1,463 rushing yards, 18 touchdowns and 5.9 yards per carry for the Wolverines.

Led by Corum, Michigan is fourth in national championship odds at legal online sports betting sites. The Wolverines are +800, behind Georgia (+225), Alabama (+600) and Ohio State (+700).

As a sophomore, Corum came within an eyelash of cracking 1,000 yards on the ground (finishing with 952 on 144 carries), with 11 scores in 2021.

The senior enters his final year in Ann Arbor with 31 rushing touchdowns and just over 2,400 yards on the ground, with a shot at cracking the Wolverines’ top-10 in rushing yards.

Corum is far and away the most hyped running back in college football by search interest score, at 23, beating out Penn State’s Nicholas Singleton (18), and his Michigan backfield partner, Donovan Edwards (16).

Caesars Sportsbook lists Ohio State as the Big Ten favorite at +175, followed by Michigan at +180 and Penn State at +575.
