Iowa kicker Keith Duncan named first-team preseason AP All-American

Tyler Linderbaum from the Hawkeyes and Charlie Kolar from the Cyclones were named to the second team.

11 players named Tuesday to The Associated Press preseason All-America first-team will not be playing college football this fall.

Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence and Oklahoma State running back Chuba Hubbard highlight the first-team honorees who won't be playing in the fall.

The team was selected by 47 AP poll voters, who were asked to consider all Division I players — even those who had already opted out of the season or whose teams had postponed football.

The results show just how much star power will be missing from this pandemic-altered college football season. 12 second-team All-Americans will also not play in the fall, including Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Justin Fields.
