<p> College Football 2013 All-America Team</p>

Picking a college football All-American team is no easy task. Some positions are deeper than others, while it's also difficult to project how a player will perform with the losses or additions around them.

The SEC leads the way with 24 overall selections across Athlon's four All-America teams. However, the Pac-12 isn't far behind with 23 selections. 

With that in mind, it's time to unveil Athlon's 2013 All-America Team.
