The college football postseason has officially come to a close with the Georgia Bulldogs avenging their SEC championship loss to beat the Alabama Crimson Tide for the first College Football Playoff national championship of Kirby Smart's tenure.
Now that all of the bowl games and the playoff are behind us, it's time to highlight the top performers from the postseason action by creating an All-Bowl Team with the help of PFF's unique play-by-play grading system and other advanced metrics.
Below is that team, which includes players from the CFP, Duke's Mayo Bowl, Rose Bowl, Famous Idaho Potato Bowl and more.
North Carolina was on the wrong side of one of bowl season's biggest upsets, as it was favored by double digits and ended up losing by double digits to South Carolina. Howell, however, was far from the reason. The Tar Heels quarterback earned a 92.5 passing grade in the Duke's Mayo Bowl, recording three big-time throws and zero turnover-worthy plays in the process. It was the highest passing grade by a Power 5 quarterback from this year's bowl season.
