Athlon makes its picks for All-America honors.
College football’s 2013 regular season – with the exception of the Army-Navy game – is in the books.
The 2013 season featured plenty of intrigue and surprises, and Florida State and Auburn are set to cap the BCS era with the national championship matchup on Jan. 6 in Pasadena.
With the season for all BCS programs completed, it’s time to honor the top players around the nation.
As usual, it’s no easy assignment assembling three All-America teams. There are plenty of standout performers that won’t make the cut, but we tried to blend talent, production and consistency to form the top three teams.
