Oklahoma State fans have spent the last four months trying to convince anyone they can that Canadian speedster Chuba Hubbard is the best running back in America.

While Heisman Trophy and Doak Walker Award voters disagreed, it’s hard to argue the impact Hubbard had for OSU this past season.

He had the second best single-season by a running back in program history and the best season by a back during the Mike Gundy era. The NCAA rushing champion, finishing with 2,094 yards (1st), 21 touchdowns (t-3rd), 161.1 rushing yards per game (1st), and a rushing-per-carry average of 6.38 (11th).

With Hubbard officially back for 2020, OSU fans will not only get to enjoy another season of the amazing athlete, they could also watch him become the program’s all-time rushing leader.

Here is the current standings for OSU running backs, with Chuba currently sitting in 11th place, less than 100 yards outside of the top 10.

1 Thurman Thomas 4847
2 Terry Miller 4754
3 David Thompson 4318
4 Kendall Hunter 4181
5 Ernest Anderson 3672
6 Barry Sanders 3556
7 Justice Hill 3539
8 Tatum Bell 3409
9 Joseph Randle 3085
10 Gerald Hudson 2921
11 Chuba Hubbard 2834

Forget the top-10. With 944 yards needed to pass Barry Sanders, Hubbard has a real shot to move into the top-5.

Take that a few steps further; if Hubbard replicates his 2,094-yard 2019 season, he would have enough to pass Terry Miller for second.

I’m not sure Hubbard will hit the 2,168 yards necessary to pass Thurman Thomas for the all-time mark, in part because Hubbard won’t get the same workload as last season. But then again, who would have guessed he would be a 2,000-yard rusher ahead of the 2019 season? Not me.

As if watching Hubbard run in America’s Brightest Orange for another season isn’t fun enough, watching his name climb in OSU’s record books is only going to make it that much better.
