Six From Big 12 Named Consensus Football All-Americans


Six football players from the Big 12 have been named 2013 Consensus All-Americans. This matches the most from any conference.

Baylor offensive lineman Cyril Richardson and Texas Tech tight end Jace Amaro were two of the 10 unanimous first-team selections. Other Big 12 players named to the Consensus All-America Team were center Gabe Ikard of Oklahoma, defensive back Justin Gilbert of Oklahoma State, Texas kicker Anthony Fera and his Longhorn teammate, defensive end Jackson Jeffcoat.

Players were selected as Consensus All-Americans on the basis of being named to the most All-America First Teams at that particular position. To be selected, players have to be named to the first team on two of the five nationally recognized All-America teams: American Football Coaches Association, Associated Press, Football Writers Association of America, The Sporting News, and the Walter Camp Foundation.  Second and third team selections are used as tiebreakers.

The Big 12 has had 102 players named Consensius All-Americans in football since the formation of the conference in 1996.
