Oklahoma State running back Chuba Hubbard earned unanimous All-American honors Thursday with his first-team selection to the Football Writers Association of America for his fifth first-team selection on the five NCAA-recognized All-America teams.

Hubbard is OSU’s 10th unanimous All-America selection in program history and the first since James Washington in 2017. He’s also the fourth Cowboy running back to earn the honor: Bob Fenimore (1945), Terry Miller (1977) and Barry Sanders (1988).

Hubbard’s 1,936 rushing yards are the second-most in a single season at OSU, trailing only Sanders’ NCAA-record 2,580 yards in 1988. The Sherwood Park, Alberta, Canada native said earlier this week he plans to play against Texas A&M in the Texas Bowl on Dec. 27 in Houston, where he’ll try to be the fifth OSU player as the FBS rushing champion: Fenimore (1945), Ernest Anderson (1982), Sanders (1988) and Gerald Hudson (1990).

To earn unanimous All-America status, a player must be honored by all five recognized All-America teams: American Football Coaches Association, Associated Press, Football Writers Association of America, The Sporting News and Walter Camp Football Foundation.
