The college football bowl season featured so many thrilling individual performances that even a few 200-yard rushers failed to make the Associated Press 2016 All-Bowl Team.
Ahead of next week's College Football Playoff championship, here are the picks for best performances of this year's college football bowl season.
Honorable mention: Joshua Dobbs, Tennessee; Ryan Higgins, Louisiana Tech; Quinton Flowers, South Florida
Justin Jackson, Northwestern: Jackson rushed for 224 yards and three touchdowns on 32 carries as Northwestern upset No. 22 Pittsburgh 31-24 in the Pinstripe Bowl .

Deontay Burnett, Southern California: Burnett caught 13 passes for 164 yards and three touchdowns, including a game-tying score with 1:20 left in the Rose Bowl.

Asiata won the Morris Trophy this season as the Pac-12's top offensive lineman, an award determined by voting from the conference's starting defensive linemen.

Forrest Lamp, Western Kentucky: Lamp didn't allow a sack or a quarterback pressure in Western Kentucky's 51-31 Boca Raton Bowl victory over Memphis. He even scored a touchdown by catching a lateral and running 9 yards into the end zone.
Matt Leidner, Minnesota: This former walk-on and scout-team center had dropped 30 pounds before the Holiday Bowl to prepare for foot surgery since he wasn't expecting to play. He instead earned his first career start because of injuries to Tyler Moore and Jared Weyler. Leidner helped Minnesota defeat Washington State 17-12 and underwent surgery the following day.
