Oklahoma junior safety Tony Jefferson has been named second team All-American by the Associated Press.
Jefferson leads the Sooners with 113 tackles. He also has 3.5 tackles for loss and two interceptions.
Second-ranked Alabama placed four players on the team.
Among them was center Barrett Jones, who became a two-time first-team selection.
No other team had more than one player selected to the first team. The Tide also led with six players chosen to all three teams.
Notre Dame, Texas A&M, Stanford and Florida were second with four players on the three teams, though linebacker Manti Te’o was the only Fighting Irish player to make the first team.
Alabama faces top-ranked Notre Dame in the BCS championship game Jan. 7.
Texas A&M Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel was the first-team quarterback.
Wisconsin running back Montee Ball and Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones also became two-time All-Americans.
Nine Southeastern Conference players made the first team, more than any other conference. The Pac-12 was second with six players on the first team. No other conference had more than two.
The team was voted on by a panel of 16 AP college football poll voters.
