With Heisman Trophy and plenty of other awards doled out, it's time to give a few more honors. SI.com released its midseason All-America Team in October, but much has changed since -- though a few familiar names remain, like that quarterback from Oregon. Now that the full regular season is in the books, here's the best of the best, the 2014 SI.com All-America Team.
Perhaps the biggest surprise of the list isn't any particular name but rather the players' conference affiliations. The Pac-12 topped the SEC, and all other conferences with eight first-team selections, while the SEC added seven. The ACC contributed five members, while three came from the Big Ten, one from the Big 12 and two from Group of Five conferences. Alabama and Florida State tied for the most first-team selections with four each, followed by Oregon with three. Ohio State, the fourth playoff contender along with the Crimson Tide, Seminoles and Ducks, did not get a single player on the first team, though defensive end Joey Bosa earned a second-team selection
