College Football's 2015 Postseason All-America Team

Athlon makes its picks for All-America honors.

With the completion of college football’s regular season, it’s time to take a look back and honor the best of the best and top performers from 2015. Whether it was on offense, defense or special teams, there was no shortage of clutch performances by players at every position.

 

The bowl season kicks off on Dec. 19 and continues until the national championship on Jan. 11 in Glendale, Ariz. While the teams are preparing for their final contests of the season, it’s time to unveil Athlon Sports’ first-, second- and third-team All-Americans.

 

As usual, it’s never easy 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.
