Both of USC Football's top two players, Caleb Williams and Tuli Tuipulotu were named as unanimous First-Team All-Americans this season. Being a unanimous First-Team All-American means that one was selected as a First-Team All-American by all five officially recognized First-Team All-America teams.

Those five recognized First-Team All-America Teams are Walter Camp, FWAA, AP, AFCA, and Sporting News. Speaking of AFCA All-Americans, though, Williams and Tuipulotu were not the only Trojans to receive an All-American nod from them.

That's because while USC Football QB Williams and DL Tuipulotu were the only Trojans selected as AFCA First-Team All-Americans, Guard Andrew Vorhees did receive a Second-Team All-American selection. All three deserved it. Williams won the Heisman Trophy after throwing for 4,075 passing yards and 37 touchdowns, and running for 372 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns.

Tuipulotu led the Power 5 with 21 tackles for loss, and led the whole country in sacks with 12.5. He did this despite having to rotate between defensive tackle, defensive end, and even mike linebacker. Vorhees was the best offensive linemen on a team that was clearly lost and heavily impacted without him in the Pac-12 Championship Game.


Bowl season continues today with the Myrtle Beach Bowl between Marshall and UConn. Both teams are unranked, and all bowls except for one so far this bowl season have featured at least one team that is not ranked in the College Football Playoff Top 25 Ranking. That one game happened on Friday, where No. 25 UTSA took on No. 24 Troy.
