    5. 1974
    Returning for their junior seasons, Archie Griffin and Cornelius Greene looked to earn their third-consecutive Rose Bowl appearance. Together, they compiled 2,537 rushing yards, the second-most in program history, with Griffin rushing for 1,695 yards, the sixth-best mark in program history.

    Ohio State's 1974 duo is the only running back-quarterback duo to crack the top 10 of our list. Greene won the Big Ten Most Valuable Player Award and earned All-American honors in 1975. He was inducted into the Ohio State Athletics Hall of Fame in 1998. Griffin won his first Heisman Trophy.

    7. 1973
    The first of Archie Griffin's three appearances on our top ten, the sophomore's first year as a full-time starter was a sign of things to come. Paired with quarterback Cornelius Greene, the duo's rushing production accounted for over 50% of the team's total yards, the sixth-best mark in Ohio State history.

    “He’s a better young man than he is a football player, and he’s the best football player I’ve ever seen.” - Woody Hayes on Archie Griffin.
