ATLANTA — Despite striking out on positional awards at Thursday night’s Home Depot College Football Awards, Oklahoma receiver CeeDee Lamb and Oklahoma State running back Chuba Award still gained national acclaim, earning first-team status on the Walter Camp All-American team.
Lamb finished the regular season top 10 nationally in receiving yards, receiving touchdowns and yards per catch. Lamb was a finalist for the Biletinikoff Award, but lost out to LSU’s Ja’Marr Chase.
Hubbard led the nation in rushing yards (1,936) and total yards from scrimmage (2,119). Hubbard was up for the Doak Walker Award, but the trophy for best running back went to Wisconsin’s Jonathan Taylor.
Like Lamb, OU quarterback Jalen Hurts lost individual awards to his LSU counterpart as Tigers QB Joe Burrow took home the O’Brien Award for best quarterback and Maxwell Award for most outstanding player.
