Poyer named consensus first team All-America
For those wondering, first-team honors on three of the five major All-America teams make for a consensus choice.
The five are: Associated Press, American Football Coaches Association, Football Writers of America, Sporting News and the Walter Camp Football Foundation. Jordan Poyer so far has gone 3-for-3 on first team honors, with the AP and Football Writers yet to come.
Poyer is tied for No. 2 in the nation with seven interceptions this season and was a semifinalist for the Jim Thorpe Award (top cornerback) and the Bednarik Award (top defensive player).
A co-team captain, Poyer helped OSU tie for the best turnaround in college football this season with a six-game improvement from 2011 to 2012. The Beavs went from 3-9 last year to a 9-3 mark in 2012.
Poyer and his teammates conclude their season Dec. 29 when the Beavers take on the Texas Longhorns in the Valero Alamo Bowl on ESPN at 3:45 p.m. PST.
