Five players from top-ranked Oklahoma--including repeaters Keith Jackson at tight end and guard Mark Hutson, plus three members of the nation's top-ranked defense--were named to the Associated Press 1987 All-American college football team.
The squad includes three other holdovers from 1986--Ohio State linebacker Chris Spielman, Miami defensive back Bennie Blades and Notre Dame flanker-kick returner-running back Tim Brown. Oklahoma's defensive representatives are linebacker Dante Jones, end Darrell Reed and free safety Rickey Dixon.
Tackle Dave Cadigan of USC was named to the offensive team. (Complete team, Page 14.)
