Red Grange of Illinois, the first unanimous All-American

The College Football All-America Team is an honorific college football all-star team compiled after each NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) season to recognize that season's most outstanding performers at their respective positions. There are several organizations that select their own All-America teams. Since 1924, the NCAA has designated selectors whose teams are used to determine "consensus" and "unanimous" All-Americans. Any player who is named to the first team by at least half the official selectors for a given season is recognized as being a consensus All-American.[a] A player on the first team of every official selector is recognized as being a unanimous All-American.[2] Since 2002, the five selectors designated by the NCAA for this purpose are the Associated Press (AP), the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA), the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA), Sporting News, and the Walter Camp Football Foundation (WCFF).[1][3]

Unanimous All-Americans are considered "elite, the cream of the crop from any particular season."[2] Many are later inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame, and many also go on to have successful professional football careers. From 1924 to 2000, 364 players were unanimous selections at least once. Thus, only a handful of players—if any—each season receive the honor. The first player to do so was Red Grange, star halfback for the Illinois Fighting Illini, who received first-team honors from all six major selectors in 1924.[4]

As of the end of 2017 Division I FBS season, Oklahoma has had the most unanimous All-America selections of any school, with 35, followed by Notre Dame with 34. Eighty-four schools have had at least one unanimous All-America selection. The most recent All-America team, the 2017 team, consisted of 14 unanimous selections, including Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield.
