ATHENS, Ga. – The University of Georgia ranks second all-time among all Southeastern Conference schools with 110 Academic All-Americans, as of July 2011. 

Georgia is ninth among all Division I schools and ranks 14th among all universities. The University of Florida ranks first in the SEC with 118 and is 10th nationally. The University of Tennessee, which is tied for 17th is the only other SEC school ranked among the top-20. Alabama is tied for 22nd.

Senior football player Drew Butler became the latest Bulldog to become an Academic All-American, earning the honor for the second straight season. Fran Tarkenton was the first Georgia student-athlete to receive the honor, while Bernadette Locke became the first female student-athlete to be named an Academic All-American.

The Collegiate Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) began this program in the 1950's, and since then, has honored thousands of deserving student-athletes from numerous sports and across all divisions with these elite Capital One Academic All-America scholar-athlete honors. Currently, CoSIDA honors Academic All-Americans in 12 sports.
