Oregon running back Kenjon Barner has been named a 2012 college football All-American by the Football Writers Association of America, the organization announced Friday.

Barner, who rushed for 1,624 yards and 21 touchdowns this season, is one of two running backs to earn the recognition, joining UCLA's Jonathan Franklin.

The 5'11, 195-pound senior was a major part of Oregon's success this season. The No. 4 Ducks finished the year with a 11-1 record, their only loss coming to Stanford, and will play No. 5 Kansas State in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 3.

The FWAA All-America Team, which has been announced annually since 1944, is the second-oldest college football All-American team. The group is selected by 12 members of the FWAA, representing 12 different college football conferences.
