Alabama football quarterback Bryce Young headlined as the quarterback on the AP Midseason All-America team, the news service announced Tuesday.

Offensive lineman Evan Neal and linebacker Will Anderson also made the team, which serves as a check-in ahead of the end-of-season All-America teams in December.

The Crimson Tide hold a 6-1 record, and all three are among the top standouts. Young, whose +200 odds on BetMGM make him a betting co-favorite for the Heisman Trophy, has been efficient in his first season as Alabama's QB, throwing for 2,082 yards and 24 touchdowns with three interceptions and a 69.6% completion. That includes a 348-yard, four-touchdown performance last Saturday at Mississippi State.

Neal has been his usual dominant self at left tackle, kicking out from his left guard spot where he started every game in 2020.

Speaking of performances at Mississippi State, Anderson had the most dominant game of anyone wearing crimson on Saturday.  The sophomore linebacker had four sacks and six total tackles as the Alabama defense grounded Mike Leach's Air Raid.

All three will continue to build their full-year All-America cases on Saturday against Tennessee.
