CBS Sports 2015 College Football All-America Team

A panel of college football writers, analysts and experts across CBS Sports convened and now present the CBS Sports 2015 College Football All-America team.

While Alabama and Florida led the way with three first-team selections each, Stanford's Christian McCaffrey holds the distinction of being the only unanimous selection, receiving every first-team vote as the top all-purpose player in college football this season. McCaffrey became the sport's all-purpose king with 3,276 yards, breaking a record Barry Sanders set during his magical 1988 season.

Three players -- Ohio State defensive end Joey Bosa, Florida cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III and Florida State kicker Roberto Aguayo -- repeated their first-team nods from 2014.
