I forgot to mention the other Red Raider in the Oakland backfield was Mark Van Eeghen, can you imagine youngsters what you missed ?

Hubbard and van Eeghen might have been in the same backfield for a couple of games, but they weren't both 100 rushers at the time. van Eeghen didn't achieve a 100 yd performance until 1976, after Hubbard's Raiders career was over. Furthermore, Hubbard never played on an Oakland Super Bowl team. Oakland was in the SB in 1968 (Hubbard arrived for 1969 season) and in 1977,81,84,2003 (after Hubbard's tenure at Oakland). Nevertheless, both backs are still in the top 5 all-time rushers in Oakland history.
