D.J. Moore of Vanderbilt makes 2nd team All-American

Not a huge surprise, but D.J. Moore has been named second-team All-American by the Associated Press. Don't be surprised either when D.J. jumps to the NFL at the end of the season.

Since he may have only one game left, he should start both ways for the Commodores in the Music City Bowl. Heck, he should never leave the field.

Here are members of the All-America team that D.J. and the rest of the Commodores faced this season:

First team:

• Michael Oher, OT, Sr., Ole Miss
• Peria Jerry, DT, Sr., Ole Miss
• Brandon Spikes, LB, Jr., Florida
• Alphonso Smith, CB, Sr. Wake Forest
• Eric Berry, S, So., Tennessee

Second team:

• Knowshon Moreno, RB, Jr., Georgia
• Jarrett Dillard, WR, Sr., Rice
• Percy Harvin, All-Purpose, Jr., Florida
• Aaron Curry, LB, Sr., Wake Forest

Third team:
• Tim Tebow, QB, Jr., Florida
• Michael Tauliliili, LB, Sr., Duke

And in the Music City Bowl against Boston College, the Commodores will be facing third-team All-Americans B.J. Raji, a senior defensive tackle, and Mark Herzlich, a junior linebacker.
