College football’s 2016-17 bowl season is officially over. Monday night's championship game featured a thriller between Alabama and Clemson, as the Tigers scored in the final seconds to knock off the Crimson Tide from the top spot. In addition to the national championship, the Rose Bowl between USC and Penn State and the Orange Bowl matchup with Florida State and Michigan were two of the better games this postseason. With all 41 postseason games in the books, it's time to take a look back at the bowl season and highlight some of the top performances. As expected, there were no shortage of standout performances from every position and some tough choices to make on all three sides of the ball.
