MORGANTOWN -

West Virginia's wide receiver duo of Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey again found themselves receiving national recognition for their stellar regular season with the Mountaineers.

Austin was named to an AP First Team All-American as an all-purpose player after a season in which he totaled 2,760 yards with 17 touchdowns on offense and special teams. His all-purpose yards rank second nationally behind Western Kentucky's Antonio Andrews.

This is the second time Austin has been named to a first team All-America list, meaning that he needs to be named first team by either the Sporting News or the Football Writers Association of America in order to achieve consensus All-American status.

Austin was also named a second team All-American as a wide receiver by the Water Camp Football Foundation, which does not include an all-purpose player on its teams.

Austin finished eighth in this year's Heisman Trophy voting.

Bailey joined Austin as a second team selection for the Walter Camp All-America list and is again on the second team for the AP's honors.

The junior receiver finished the regular season with 106 receptions for 1,501 yards and 23 touchdowns, the best in the nation.

Bailey was also a finalist for the Fred Biletnikoff Award, which ultimately went to Southern California's Marqise Lee.
