The Associated Press All-America Team was announced Tuesday and it contains some familiar names, just as you would suspect.

Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota became the first Oregon quarterback to garner All-America honors. Teammate and defensive back Ifo Ekpre-Olomu was also named to the first team.

Heisman finalists Amari Cooper, the record-setting Alabama wide receiver, and Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon, who leads the nation in rushing, were also first-team selections.

Florida State led the way with 6 players making the team, including 3 first-teamers: tight end Nick O’Leary, guard Tre Jackson and kicker Roberto Aguayo.

Washington also had 3 players on the first team: all-purpose player Shaq Thompson, defensive tackle Danny Shelton and linebacker Hau’oli Kikaha, whose 18 sacks are tops in the nation.
