NORMAN, Okla. -- Oklahoma's Ryan Broyles was named a consensus All-American for the second consecutive year Tuesday by the NCAA. Tuesday's honor gives Oklahoma its 75th consensus All-American. Since the modern era of college football, OU has produced more consensus All-Americans than any other school. Broyles is one of just three players on this year's team to earn consensus recognition for a second straight year.

Under Bob Stoops, OU players have earned 23 consensus All-America honors. Broyles is just the fifth under Stoops to earn back-to-back consensus honors and the first since offensive lineman Duke Robinson did so in 2007 and 2008.

To be selected a player has to be named first team on at least two of the five selected All-American teams. Second and third teams were used to break ties by the five organizations used in the consensus chart -- American Football Coaches Association, Associated Press, Football Writers Association of America, The Sporting News and Walter Camp Foundation.

Broyles was named a first team All-American by the Football Writers Association of America and the Walter Camp Foundation and a second team All-American by the Associated Press and The Sporting News.
