College Football: The FOX Sports 2023 All-America team

-

- Advertisment -

In many ways, the conclusion of the 2023 regular season marks the end of an era in college football. 

A slew of conference realignment moves are on the horizon, significant changes to the NCAA model are in the works, and there is the general feeling of wiping the slate clean given the amount of player turnover via graduation, the draft, or the transfer portal.

Despite all that, the most recent college football campaign certainly left a lasting memory and was one of the most indelible of recent vintage.

A new team graced the Playoff field, an undefeated Power 5 champion was inexplicably left out, records fell across the board on both sides of the ball and numerous programs reveled in unexpected resurgences.

Having covered the sport from the opening snaps of fall camp through the memorable results of Championship Weekend, our team of experts was able to sift through it all and narrow it down to a list of players who help tell the story of the season. These players stand above all others and are worthy enough to earn recognition as 2023 FOX Sports All-Americans.

This year, the Big Ten and Pac-12 tied for the most selections (12 each) across the first and second teams, followed by the Big 12 (9), SEC (9), ACC (5) and Mountain West (3). Michigan, Iowa, Texas, Oregon, Georgia and Notre Dame tied for the most-represented school with three players apiece. 

With all that being said, here are our 2023 All-Americans, as selected by FOX Sports college football writers RJ Young, Laken Litman, Bryan Fischer and Michael Cohen
