Penn State senior defensive end Pete Massaro and junior guard John Urschel have been selected as first-team Capital One/CoSIDA Academic All-Americans.
Massaro graduated last December with a 3.85 GPA in finance. He will earn a second degree in economics later this month. Massaro also made the first team in 2010.
Urschel graduated last May with a 4.0 GPA in math. He's scheduled to earn a master's degree next spring.
Both players made major contributions to Penn State's 2012 season. Massaro endured multiple injuries to remain in the defensive line rotation. Urschel was a first-team All-Big Ten selection by the coaches.
