Jake Knott and A.J. Klein. They go together like peas and carrots, so it makes sense they’re together one more time, on the All Big 12 team.
The Cyclones senior linebackers make both the coaches and associated press first teams. Klein a unanimous selection after leading Iowa State with 98 tackles, and 4 career interception returns for touchdowns.
Knott makes the cut despite missing four games after shoulder surgery.
The former Waukee Warrior made 11 tackles and forced a fumble in his final game.
Urbandale native Jake McDonough also a first team selection according to Big 12 coaches. Big Jake made 31 tackles and had a pair of sacks.
