College football: Programs' Twitter accounts offer more iconic duos
Recently, someone on Twitter posted a photo of Kendall and Kylie Jenner that insinuated that the two celebrities were the most iconic duo ever.

Twitter went crazy, and the post went viral. Twitter users across the nation began tweeting their own ideas of an iconic duo, and a few football teams and conferences responded with their version of an iconic pair.
Soooo, about that... pic.twitter.com/3oFC82tzTy— Ohio State Football (@OhioStateFB) September 29, 2016
And as for a few current college football iconic duos:
Alabama's offensive coordinator Lane Kiffin and defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt
The Crimson Tide continues to dominate college football, and without the direction of this pair, Alabama might not be as solid of a program. According to NCAA Stats, the Tide’s offense averages about 480 yards per game, and its defense, ranked No. 15 in the nation, only allows opponents about 280 yards per game. That 200-yard difference plays a part in the four wins Alabama has tallied so far, and with this couple in charge, we are likely to see more.
Ohio State’s center Pat Elflein and quarterback J.T. Barrett
While Ohio State offered its own option, these two are another solid duo from the team. As a redshirt senior that returned to a rebuilding line with only three returning starters, Elflein has led Ohio State’s offensive line, which has allowed J.T. Barrett to be sacked only twice this year so far. Because of this J.T. Barrett is able to perform well as the Buckeyes' quarterback.
Louisville's Lamar Jackson’s arm and legs
Lamar Jackson’s name continues to pop up in Heisman discussions, and with 150 points posted to his name, it makes sense. He is both a powerful runner, currently ranked sixth in the nation with 526 yards for 12 touchdowns, and a solid passer, tallying 1,330 passing yards for 13 touchdowns. And, this makes his arms and legs one of the most iconic duos in college football right now.
Michigan’s safety Jabrill Peppers and defensive end Taco Charlton
Peppers remains another Heisman hopeful this year, which as a defensive player means a lot. He has tallied more than 20 solo tackles, a touchdown and two sacks, according to NCAA Stats. Pair him with Taco Charlton, who has posted a sack and five tackles, and Michigan’s defense looks to be unstoppable because of this duo.
Clemson’s quarterback Deshaun Watson and wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud
Deshaun Waston is another name heard often, especially after Clemson’s undefeated regular season and run to the national championship game. So far, according to NCAA Stats, he has rushed for 120 yards and passed for 996. Ray-Ray McCloud adds to Watson’s 60 percent completion rate by nabbing what Watson throws his way. McCloud, with Watson’s passes, has posted 255 yards and two touchdowns receiving, according to NCAA Stats, making them a tight offensive pair.
Overall, there are plenty of dynamic, powerful and, yes, iconic duos in college football that could rival the popularity of the Kardashian/ Jenner family, but it all comes down to an individual's preference.
