Oregon State's Jordan Poyer was named a first-team All-American by The Associated Press on Tuesday, and he is the first Beaver to receive such an honor since 2010, when defensive tackle Stephen Paea was named to the AP first team. Poyer, a senior from Astoria, Ore., was second in the nation with seven interceptions.

Oregon Ducks sophomore cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu made the AP All-American third team, and Oregon running back Kenjon Barner made the AP second team. Fellow Pac-12 running back Johnathan Franklin of the UCLA Bruins was also on the second team while Arizona Wildcats sophomore Ka'Deem Carey was a first-team running back.

Washington Huskies tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins found himself on the AP third team.
