Get the inside scoop on your favorite team:
Now that Florida has left no doubt about which team deserves the national championship, we'll move on to a new debate.
Who was the best quarterback in the bowl games?
Was it Hawaii's Colt Brennan, who threw five touchdown passes against Arizona State on his way to setting an NCAA single-season record in that category?
Or was it Southern California's John David Booty, who tied a Rose Bowl record by throwing four second-half touchdown passes in a 32-18 triumph over Michigan?
Perhaps you prefer LSU's JaMarcus Russell, who used his cannon arm to embarrass Notre Dame's secondary in the Tigers' 41-14 Sugar Bowl triumph.
And then there's Chris Leak, who wrapped up his college career with an error-free performance while leading Florida to the national championship.
Choosing a quarterback represented only one of the tough decisions Rivals.com faced in putting together its all-bowl team. Plenty of wide receivers, linebackers and defensive ends also ended their seasons with memorable outings.
In the end, the schools that delivered the most dominating performances naturally put the most players on this team.
National champion Florida and Rose Bowl winner Southern California led the way with three selections each. Sugar Bowl champion LSU, Texas Bowl winner Rutgers and Armed Forces Bowl victor Utah each put two players on the team.
We also recognized a few guys who stood tall in defeat.
Arkansas, Ohio State and Oklahoma may not have won their bowl games, but they each had a player whose remarkable individual effort warranted a spot on the team.
