College Football's 2018 Postseason All-America Team

Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama Crimson Tide Football

Tua Tagovailoa, Alabama Crimson Tide Football

With college football’s 2018 regular season in the books and bowl season upcoming, it’s time to take a look back and honor the best of the best and top performers for the All-America team. Whether it was on offense, defense or special teams, there were no shortage of clutch performances by players at every position. As expected, the toughest debate on offense came at quarterback. Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa and Oklahoma's Kyler Murray are both deserving of first-team honors this year, but we gave a slight edge to Tagovailoa. On defense, sorting out the linemen for the four teams was the toughest call on that side of the ball.

As usual, it’s never easy assembling fourth 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 four teams.
