Outside of Heisman Trophy winner Bryce Young, who is a quarterback, Trey Sanders was the next back with 70 carries for 309 yards and two touchdowns on the season.
The Bulldogs backfield has been more well-balanced. Zamir White led the Dawgs with 147 carries for 772 yards and 10 touchdowns.
James Cook also carried the football 107 times for 651 yards and seven more touchdowns. Kenny McIntosh also had 56 carries for 322 yards and three more touchdowns.
While Robinson Jr. is a big focus of the Crimson Tide offense, the Bulldogs have the better overall attack, as several players can carry the rock and give the others a rest when needed.
