Arizona State senior defensive tackle Will Sutton and Arizona junior running back Ka’Deem Carey repeated as Associated Press First Team All-Americans on Tuesday.
The AP All-America team is the third released among the five recognized by the NCAA for consensus status. Sutton and Carey were both left off the Sporting News All-America team last week. Carey made the Walter Camp Football Foundation Team but Sutton did not.
Sutton, a consensus All-American in 2012, finished the season with 44 tackles, including 11 1/2 for loss and four sacks. On Monday, Sutton accepted an invitation to the Reese’s Senior Bowl, which is to be played in Mobile, Ala., on Jan. 25. Sutton also made First Team All-Pac-12 and repeated as the conference’s Pat Tillman Defensive Player of the Year, becoming the second player ever to win the award twice.

Carey, also a consensus All-American in 2012, rushed for 1,716 yards and 17 touchdowns this season on his way to Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year honors. He was also a First Team All-Pac-12 selection and finished 10th in Heisman Trophy voting.
To earn consensus All-America status, a player must appear on three of the five recognized lists. The Football Writers Association of America and American Football Coaches Association have yet to release their All-America teams.
