FRESNO, Calif. - Fresno State sophomore wide receiver Davante Adams continues to collect postseason honors, as he was named Tuesday to the 2013 Associated Press All-America second-team.

Additionally, Adams was named a third-team All-American by CBSSports.com and a honorable mention All-American by Sports Illustrated.

Also making the Sports Illustrated honorable mention All-America team was quarterback Derek Carr and left tackle Austin Wentworth.

Adams, the Palo Alto, Calif. native, led the FBS this season in touchdown receptions (23), receptions per game (10.2) and total receptions (122).

His 23 touchdown catches have set a new school and Mountain West record and are the fourth-most in FBS single-season history. Additionally, that total is as many or more than 87 of the 123 bowl subdivision teams have for passing touchdowns this season.

Adams has set new school records for receptions and yards (1,645) and needs just seven more catches and 141 yards receiving to break the MW records for catches and receiving yardage in a season.

Playing in 25 career games, Adams is the FBS career active leader in receiving yards per game (118.3), receptions per game (9.0) and touchdown catches (37) despite playing in 18 fewer games than any of the other players ranked in the top five for career touchdown catches.

Other All-America accolades Adams has collected this year include a second-team selection by the Walter Camp Football Foundation, a second-team nod by Athlon Sports and first-team selection by Sports Blog Nation.

Carr, who leads the nation in eight offensive categories, was also a third-team All-America selection by Athlon Sports earlier this season.



Wentworth becomes Fresno State's first offensive lineman to receive All-America accolades since guard Cole Popovich in 2005.

The 21st-ranked Fresno State Bulldogs depart Tuesday for Las Vegas where they are set to face USC on Dec. 21 in the 2013 Royal Purple Las Vegas Bowl (12:30 p.m./ABC).
