Finalists and Winner: 2013 FBS All-Bilo Running Back of the Year

We continue our awards season with our 2013 FBS All-Bilo Running Back of the Year Finalists and Winner. It was a huge year for RBs in FBS football, with a season full of guys who ran for 20 TDs or more for the year. Our finalists are:

Ka'Deem Hardy-Arizona
Kapri Bibbs-Colorado State
Andre Williams-Boston College

The numbers were much closer than our QB of the Year numbers ended up being, but the winner is incredibly deserving for having a season that has rarely been seen before. As a matter of fact, the winner had the kind of year seen only 6 times in the history of college football. Without further delay, the winner of our 2013 FBS Running Back of the Year Award is...

Andre Williams-Boston College
Williams was just the 6th Running Back in FBS (1-A) history to run for over 2000 yards in a single season, and tabbed 395 yards in one game against New Mexico State. Williams led the nation in carries (355), yards (2177), and yards per game (167.46). Williams added 18 TDs, and averaged 6.13 yards per carry on 27.31 carries per game. A true workhorse back with power, Williams had a season not soon to be forgotten at BC or elsewhere, and would have received my vote for the Heisman in 2013. Congratulations to Andre Williams and to the Boston College Program!
