Walter Camp, "The Father of American football," first selected an All-America team in 1889. Camp - a former Yale University athlete and football coach - is also credited with developing play from scrimmage, set plays, the numerical assessment of goals and tries and the restriction of play to eleven men per side. The Walter Camp Football Foundation - a New Haven-based all-volunteer group - was founded in 1967 to perpetuate the ideals of Camp and to continue the tradition of selecting annually an All-America team.

Slaton, a freshman, tied a Big East record with six touchdowns - all after halftime - as West Virginia came-from-behind to defeat 19th-ranked Louisville, 46-44, in three overtimes. Slaton, who rushed for 188 yards, had five rushing touchdowns (4, 1, 2, 23, and 1 yard) and added a 14-yard touchdown reception as the Mountaineers (6-1, 3-0 in the Big East) overcame a 17-point second-half deficit to produce their biggest comeback victory since 1992.
