Press Release

NORMAN — Oklahoma redshirt junior center Creed Humphrey picked up his second 2020 All-America honor Thursday morning when he was named a second-team selection by the American Football Coaches Association.

The first-time AFCA All-American started all 11 games this season and has made 37 career starts, including each of the last 36 contests dating back to the 2018 season. The 2019 and 2020 Big 12 Offensive Lineman of the Year, who was also a first-team All-Big 12 selection by the league's coaches and media this season, as well as a third-team AP All-American, did not allow a sack in 2020 according to PFF. In fact, Humphrey has not allowed a sack in his three-year career.

Humphrey was a key part of an OU offense that set numerous school and Cotton Bowl records last night in a 55-20 win over Florida. The Sooners' 55 points and 684 offensive yards were its most ever in a bowl game, while their 10.9 yards per carry set a school record for any contest. Their 684 yards, 435 rushing yards, 10.9 yards per rush and 10.5 yards per play all established Cotton Bowl records, while their 55 points and seven touchdowns tied Cotton Bowl standards.

Humphrey, who is from Shawnee, Okla., graduated this month with a degree in finance.
