The enormity of FSU's 16-year drought without a 1,000-yard rusher hits home when one examines the list of every FBS school and its last 1,000-yard rusher.

Sixty-eight of the 120 schools have produced a player who has reached the mark since 2010.

Interestingly, FSU is joined by three other ACC schools among the 10 teams with the longest droughts. NC State has the fourth-longest active streak, Duke is tied for fifth, and Virginia is tied for seventh. And, like the Seminoles, it appears highly unlikely any of them will end their droughts this season.
