2. C.J. Spiller, RB/KR, Clemson, 2009:
He finished third in the nation in kickoff return average, fourth in all-purpose running with 191 yards per game, and sixth in the Heisman Trophy voting. The schedule included four top 15 opponents, and Spiller had 234 total yards against Georgia Tech in the regular season, 301 against the Jackets in the ACC Championship game, 227 against TCU and 310 against Miami. He broke his own record with 312 yards against Florida State in 40-37 victory. He had a play of at least 54 yards in 10 of 12 games against FBS opponents and six games of at least 200 all-purpose running yards, a Clemson single-season record. Spiller scored a school-record 21 touchdowns in 2009, and was the only player nationally to score a touchdown in every game.
