Countdown to Kickoff for college football: 34

CollegeBaseCollege Kickoff Countdown is a daily series on the On Campus blog. There are now 34 days until the opening day of the 2014 season.

Number of the day: 34

Jersey No. 34 was worn by undoubtedly the most all-time great college running backs. Who was the best? Georgia’s Herschel Walker? Auburn’s Bo Jackson? Both were ultra-talented Heisman Trophy winners.

What about Jackson State’s Walter Payton? Or Texas star Ricky Williams? Each was a dominant back who wore No. 34.

Don’t forget Penn State’s Franco Harris or Michigan State’s Lorenzo White. Great backs, to be sure.

It’s hard to name another jersey number that so many college greats — especially runners — have shared.
