FWAA unveils 75th Anniversary All-American Team

Who are the best college football players of the past 75 years? Well, while that is up for debate, we have a great list of players to discuss thanks to the Football Writers Association of America announcing its 75th Anniversary All-America Team.

“This was one of the most fun, yet most difficult exercises I’ve had in life – next to parallel parking, that is,” said FWAA 75th All-America Committee chairman Kirk Bohls of the Austin American-Statesman in a statement.

“Truly, it was an exciting – if not impossible – task to find the best 75 college football players ever. Please save your hate mail, but feel free to weigh in and tell us how we messed up. And I’m sure we did, but no one should argue that it wasn’t a great idea to honor the best who have ever played the game. Let the debating begin.”

The initial voting for the team began by FWAA members in the spring, with the final touches being put on the list recently.

In what could be a bit of a surprise to some, the Nebraska Cornhuskers had the most players on the list with six — including four players on the first-team. Ohio State and Pittsburgh each had five selections, while Alabama, Oklahoma and Texas had four.

Who made the cut? Check out the full list below:
