Iowa has two players on the first team of Associated Press’ All-America football team.

Junior cornerback Josh Jackson and senior linebacker Josey Jewell received the honors Monday.

They are the Hawkeyes’ third and fourth first-team AP All-Americans this decade, joining offensive lineman Brandon Scherff (2014) and cornerback Desmond King (2015).

The last time Iowa had multiple first-teamers was 2003 with offensive tackle Robert Gallery and kicker Nate Kaeding. Tight end Dallas Clark and offensive guard Eric Steinbach had that distinction in 2002.
