[btn-post-package]It will be 2016 in just a couple days.

To help usher in the New Year, we're reliving some of the best in Big Ten football from a highly successful 2015 calendar year that saw Ohio State win the inaugural College Football Playoff in early January and three teams finish the 2015 season in the top 10 of the final CFP Rankings.

Up today: Top 5 Big Ten runs of 2015.

This is no easy task, to be sure. There were so many jaw-dropping runs, but the bosses tell us we can only spotlight our favorite five for the sake of this feature.

Our No. 1 run is Michigan running back De'Veon Smith's disappearing act and tackle-breaking TD run vs. BYU.


If not, what was your favorite run? Feel free to leave your submission in the comment box at the bottom of this post.
