Tua Tagovailoa and four of his Alabama teammates highlight the Associated Press midseason All-America team.
Michigan senior defensive end Chase Winovich also made first-team, while junior guard Ben Bredeson and junior linebacker Devin Bush made second-team. The Wolverines are ranked No. 6 entering Saturday’s game at Michigan State.
Tagovailoa, the prolific quarterback of the top-ranked Crimson Tide, has 21 touchdown passes and no interceptions without having to attempt a pass in the fourth quarter because Alabama has been so thoroughly dominant.
The Tide are averaging 53.6 points per game.
