USM’s Frank Gore Jr. and Daylen Gill named AP All-Bowl Selections

Last month, Southern Miss running back Frank Gore Jr. took home Game MVP Honors and Daylen Gill took home Defensive MVP following USM’s victory over Rice in the Lending Tree Bowl.

Now that the rest of the bowl games have played themselves out, those two individual performances still standing tall amongst the rest with both players earning a spot on the Associated Press All-Bowl Team.

Gore stole the show with an FBS bowl game record 329 rushing yards to go along with three total touchdowns.

Gill, who recently declared for the NFL Draft, equally as dominant on the other side of the ball, recording game-highs with 11 total tackles and three sacks.

Gore and his record-breaking performance also landed a spot on the Pro Football Focus All-Bowl Team.
