The Associated Press logo. The preseason top-25 was released Monday morning.
Oklahoma State’s dynamic running back Chuba Hubbard has been named as a midseason All-American by the voters of the Associated Press.
Through the first six games of the season, Hubbard leads the country in rushing yards and trails only fellow All-American selection Jonathan Taylor from Wisconsin. Hubbard’s stats to this point in the season are on pace to do special things. He has 1,094 yards rushing and 13 touchdowns.
For the Sooners, CeeDee Lamb is on the first team as well after his incredible 3-touchdown performance in the Red River Showdown last weekend with a couple of plays that will open the eyes of Biletnikoff Award voters. Lamb comes in at 11th in the country in terms of receiving yards and he is tied for tops in the country with 10 touchdowns.
On the second team, preseason All-Big 12 linebacker Kenneth Murray from Oklahoma was selected.

Yesterday afternoon the Cowboy football Twitter account also launched its Heisman campaign for their star runner. The main hashtags they used were #HubbardForHeisman and #CanadasCowboy.
It didn’t take long for others to start piling onto the cause with fans, alumni and media members alike trying to gain notoriety for Hubbard, but it was The Great One, who really surprised some people.
Wayne Gretzky went on the Edmonton Oilers’ Twitter account to voice his support:

We’ll see if that was enough for Hubbard to start winding up on more Heisman ranking lists in the coming weeks.
