Today’s U 2015 CFB Midseason All-America Team

LSU running back Leonard Fournette and Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett headline the 2015 Today’s U Midseason All-America team, which was assembled by members of the college football staff.

Last weekend, Fournette became the fastest LSU player to 1,000 rushing yards in a season and tied the FBS record by reaching that milestone in just five games. Heading into Week 7, the sophomore superstar has 119 attempts for 1,022 yards (8.6 ypc) and 12 touchdowns, leading the nation with 204.4 yards per game (Dalvin Cook is No. 2 with 158.4).

He is no stranger to the Heisman conversation, either, as the consensus leader for the bronze by a large margin.

Garrett has launched himself into the Chuck Bednarik Award talks midway through the season, the 6-foot-5, 280-pound weapon-of-mass-destruction has posted 25 tackles (9.5 for loss), 7.5 sacks and three forced fumbles in five games. His disruptive presence on the defensive front is a big reason why Texas A&M has tremendously improved on this side of the ball; the Aggies finished 77th nationally in points allowed in 2014 (28.1), but currently sit at No. 40 (21.0) and has surrendered 18.3 points on average to Power Five opponents.

Like the Today’s U preseason All-America team, the SEC leads all conferences with eight players on the list. The Big 12, Big Ten, and Pac-12 Conference come in second with five players each, while the ACC comes in last place out of Power Five members with four. Western Kentucky gave the Group of Five its lone appearance for the first team.

Seven different teams have two players on the list: TCU, LSU, Ohio State, Baylor, USC, Duke, and Stanford.

Notable mentions from our second team include Baylor quarterback Seth Russell (leads nation in yards per attempt with 11.7), Georgia running back Nick Chubb (had 13 straight 100-yard performances before suffering a knee injury last week), and Ohio State defensive end Joey Bosa (was the top-voted defensive player from our preseason All-America team).
