Tailback U

The term emerged for one reason: No other program boasts such an extraordinary list of tailbacks in the modern era, starting in 1965 with Mike Garrett, the first of five Trojans at the position to win a Heisman Trophy. Other names on the list include: O.J. Simpson, Anthony Davis, Ricky Bell, Charles White, Marcus Allen, LenDale White and Reggie Bush -- among many others who later thrived in the NFL. Besides the extraordinary talents, USC also emphasized the running game -- see coach John McKay infamous "student body left" and "student body right" -- while the rest of the Pac-10 mostly focused on throwing the football. -- Ted Miller

Since 1965, five different USC tailbacks won the Heisman Trophy. No other program can match that.
