As the season enters its second half, it's time acknowledge the stars of the first seven weeks.'s college football writers have voted, and here is the 2015 Midseason All-America Team.

After the SEC dominated our Preseason All-America Team, several of the other conferences gained ground, matching the polls, which have no SEC team in the current top four. The SEC still led all conferences in first-team honorees with seven, but the Big Ten earned the most overall selections with 14 between the first and second teams. The Big 12, led by Baylor and TCU, nearly matched the SEC's first-team total with six honorees.

Ohio State drew the most selections over any team with six players earning spots on the first and second teams. The Buckeyes, Stanford, Duke, Baylor and TCU were the only schools to get two players on the first team.

Below is the the complete Midseason All-America Team. For more coverage of the college football season at its midpoint, check out the Midseason Power Rankingsthe Halfway Heisman Watch and Midseason Bowl Projections.
