The 1954 College Football All-America team is composed of college football players who were selected as All-Americans by various organizations and writers that chose College Football All-America Teams for the 1954 college football season. The organizations choosing the teams included the United Press, Associated Press, the Football Writers Association of America, the American Football Coaches Association, and the Newspaper Editors Association. Wisconsin's fullback Alan Ameche won the Heisman Trophy in 1954 as the best player in college football and was a unanimous All-American selection. Two other players were unanimous choices among the All-American selectors: Notre Dame's quarterback Ralph Guglielmi and Ohio State's halfback Howard "Hopalong" Cassidy.
