WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Iowa's Josey Jewell and Josh Jackson picked up another All-America designation Wednesday.

The outstanding defenders were named to the American Football Coaches Association FBS All-America Team. 

That nod marks the fifth All-America honors both Jackson and Jewell have received from outlets used in establishing consensus All-America honors.

In addition, the Hawkeye defensive duo earned first team All-America honors from USA Today, SBNation.com, College Sports Madness, and College Football News.

Jewell and Jackson become the 24th and 25th consensus All-Americans in Iowa history. This year marks the fifth time in program history that a pair of Hawkeyes earned consensus All-America honors in the same season.
