The Green Wave are the slight favorites, according to the College Football sportsbooks. After coming very close to winning their last five contests of the regular season. Tulane produced its most all-conference football selections since they went unbeaten in 1998.
The Green Wave equaled that 12-0 group’s eight selections. The American Athletic Conference released its first- and second-team honors and honorable mentions on Tuesday.
As voted by the league’s coaches, seniors Patrick Johnson and Cameron Sample made the first team. As well as junior punter Ryan Wright. Senior offensive lineman Corey Dublin, sophomore offensive lineman Sincere Haynesworth, senior running back Stephon Huderson, and sophomore linebacker Dorian Williams all were voted to the second team.
Junior offensive lineman Joey Claybrook was an honorable mention.

Johnson led the league with 10 sacks and 14½ tackles for loss. He set the school record for career sacks (24 ½). He joined Nickerson to become a three-time All-AAC selection after he made the second team in 2018 and 2019.
