We are officially at the midseason point of the college football season. What this means is you are still alive despite all the keg stands, fraternity parties, and blackout tailgating. It's time to pat yourself on the back. These players in the mean time managed to stay out of trouble and produce results unlike us for our bosses because we were too worried about our fantasy teams. These are the best collegiate football players of the first half.
