Athlon magazine released a list of its Top 50 running backs of the BCS era (1998-present).

No. 1 on the list was former OU running back Adrian Peterson. They called the former Sooner All-American the “BCS version of Herschel Walker or Bo Jackson” and “his natural blend of power, speed, size and balance has never been duplicated during the BCS era.”

Peterson was one of three former OU running backs to make the list. Quentin Griffin was No. 19 and DeMarco Murray was No. 24. (Norman Transcript)
