The other Big 12 players that made the second-team were OU QB Jalen Hurts, Baylor DL James Lynch, Baylor S Grayland Arnold and TCU all-purpose player Jalen Reagor.
Hubbard was also named a unanimous first-team All-American by CBS Sports.
Hubbard had a remarkable redshirt sophomore season, especially considering he was just into his first full season as the starting running back.
He led the nation in rushing yards (1,936), yards per game (161.3) and all-purpose yards (180.1).
He also strung together 10-straight 100-yard rushing performances and had four 200-yard games this season.
After the season, Hubbard was named the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year, and deservedly so, but was snubbed in the Heisman voting as OU quarterback Jalen Hurts was named a finalist.
Hubbard has also been named a finalist for the Doak Walker Award, the nation's top running back, and a Walter Camp Player of the Year finalist. Both of those awards will be announced on Thursday, Dec. 12 on ESPN starting at 6 p.m. CT.
