Rich Rodriguez got an awful lot of credit—and justifiably so—for his tremendous success at West Virginia. But one has to wonder if Rodriguez would have won nearly as much in Morgantown without the great Pat White.

In a spectacular four-year career with the Mountaineers, White established himself as one of the greatest college quarterbacks of all time. He also rewrote the NCAA record book.

By the time he left Morgantown after the 2008 season, White had rushed for an amazing 4,480 yards in his college career, more than any other quarterback in college football history.

Which other quarterbacks rank in the Top 10 of all time for rushing? Find out here.

Pat White, West Virginia (2005-08): 684 carries, 4,480 yards
Brad Smith, Missouri (2002-05) 799 carries, 4,289 yards
