Best In Bowls

Record-setting quarterbacks and receivers. Menacing linebackers and ball-hawking defensive backs. The 2011 ESPN.com All-Bowl team features the best of the best from football's bowl season.

All-Americans such as Oklahoma State WR Justin Blackmon, Stanford OG David DeCastro and Alabama LB Courtney Upshaw picked up where they left off. But Crimson Tide kicker Jeremy Shelley and South Carolina CB Stephon Gilmore saved their best for last. Shelley kicked five field goals in the Crimson Tide's 21-0 victory over LSU in the BCS title game, and Gilmore provided a couple of big plays in the Gamecocks' 30-13 win over Nebraska in the Capital One Bowl.
