Three former Alabama backs last year ran for over 1,000 yards: Derrick Henry, Mark Ingram and Josh Jacobs. What is the only school that has had more 1,000-yard rushers in a season? For the quartet of players, one is still active.
Miami in 2007. Frank Gore is the still-active member (hopefully the hint steered you in the right direction). The other three from that year: Portis, McGahee, Edge. It is more popular than you might think for schools to have three 1,000-yard rushers. It has happened nine other times since the merger in 1970. Miami (3 times), George (2), Tennessee (2), Texas, Ohio State, Notre Dame and Alabama.
