NEW YORK (AP) -- Ohio State linebacker James Laurinaitis is an AP All-American for the third consecutive season, joining Heisman Trophy winner Sam Bradford and Texas Tech receiver Michael Crabtree on the first team.
Michigan State running back Javon Ringer is one of two Big Ten running backs chosen. Ringer is third in the country in rushing (132 ypg) and has scored 21 touchdowns.
Alabama put more players on the first team than any school, about 1,000 pounds of linemen. Offensive tackle Andre Smith, listed at 330 pounds, was a unanimous first-team choice, and was joined by center Antoine Caldwell.
Crimson Tide nose guard Terrence Cody, listed at 365 pounds, anchored the top-ranked defense in the Southeastern Conference.
Texas' Colt McCoy, the Heisman runner-up, was the second-team quarterback and Florida quarterback Tim Tebow made the third team.
