Utah defensive lineman Star Lotulelei was named to the first-team All-America team by the Associated Press on Tuesday. The tackle also earned second-team honors by Sports Illustrated.
Lotulelei, who finished the season with 42 tackles, four fumble recoveries and four pass breakups, was one of six Pac-12 players on the AP first team.
Utah returner Reggie Dunn was an honorable mention for SI's team.
Last week Lotulelei became the fourth Ute to earn Walter Camp first-team All-American honors, joining offensive lineman Jordan Gross (2002), kicker Louie Sakoda (2008) and returner Shaky Smithson (2010) in earning the honor.
