It marks the first time the Cougars have had more than one AP All-America selection since 1989, when Bob Davis, Moe Elewonibi and Chris Smith accomplished the feat.

Before this season, BYU's most recent AP All-America was Dennis Pitta in 2009.

Stephenson is No. 2 in the nation in punting, averaging 47.31 yards per attempt. He has 26 punts that traveled at least 50 yards and 24 that landed inside the 20-yard line.

Van Noy is No. 11 in the country in sacks with 11. He is also No. 13 in tackles-for-loss, with 18 for minus-110 yards.

Stephenson and Van Noy were named to CBSSports.com's All-America second team last week.
