There were plenty of stars in college football's postseason.

Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel, the first freshman to win a Heisman Trophy, picked up where he left off, dismantling Oklahoma with his arm and legs in the Cotton Bowl. Clemson WR DeAndre Hopkins continued to shatter his school's record book with his performance against LSU in the Chick-fil-A Bowl, and Texas DE Alex Okafor delivered the most dominant performance of his career against Oregon State in the Alamo Bowl.

But the biggest stars of the bowl season might have been a guard and center. Behind Barrett Jones and Chance Warmack, No. 2 Alabama throttled No. 1 Notre Dame in a 42-14 rout in the Discover BCS National Championship. -- Mark Schlabach
