IOWA CITY, Iowa. (KCRG) - Three Iowa Hawkeyes received Associated Press All-American honors on Monday.

Tight end T.J. Hockenson and safety Amani Hooker were named to the second team. Noah Fant, another tight end, was named to the third team.

Awards are nothing foreign to Hockenson, who received the John Mackey Award as the nation's top tight end. He was also named the Kwalick-Clark Big Ten tight end of the year earlier this month.

Iowa (8-4, 5-4 Big Ten) will face Mississippi State in the 2019 Outback Bowl in Tampa, Florida, on Jan. 1
