Who were the most explosive and efficient rushers in college football in 2015?

Christian McCaffrey: efficiency back?

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

So I kind of thought I had posted this a long time ago, but evidently I didn't.

Last year, I shared a file with everybody's 2014 rushing stats. I shared basic rushes-and-yards data along with two key pieces of info that basically resides only on my computer:

Opportunity Rate. This is the percentage of a runner's carries that gain at least five yards. Like, Success Rate, it is a decent measure of efficiency, though it is quite difficult to get at a runner's efficiency without in some way gauging the success and quality of the offensive line blocking for him.

Highlight Yards Per Opportunity. I use Opportunity Rate instead of Success Rate here because it meshes nicely with my explosiveness measure of choice: Highlight Yards Per Opportunity. Highlight Yards are the yards that aren't credited to the line per the Line Yardage formula; you divide that by highlight opportunities (i.e. the number of carries going at least five yards), and you get a pretty clean, easy way of looking at how big a runner's big plays are.

Combine these two measures, and you get a nice look at how frequently a runner was generating big-play opportunities and how big those big plays were. That's the essence of being a good running back, no?

You can download a file with all 2015 rushing data here. There are four tabs: QBs, RBs, Other, and All. That should suffice for any giant data needs.

Meanwhile, here are all running backs with at least 100 carries (sorted by number of carries).

This gives you a pretty good idea of who was both efficient and explosive (Henry, Fournette, Elliott, Freeman), who was more of an efficiency back (McCaffrey, Gallman, Tra Carson), who was more all-or-nothing (Pumphrey, Jahad Thomas, Jeremy McNichols), and who was, uh, just nothing (Justin Jackson, Jalen Hurd, Kelvin Taylor).

Obviously there is context that goes into these numbers, and it very much bears mentioning that there are no opponent adjustments here. So please don't come after me, Tennessee fans. I think Hurd is decent enough. (I also think Alvin Kamara is a decent amount better. And so do the stats.)

For completeness, here are all QBs who rushed at least 70 times. Greg Ward Jr. is a stud. And uh, K-State probably had Joe Hubener run too much.
