Crossan will now be placed on a national ballot from which the Academic All-America Team will be selected in December.
- Crossan has played in 10 games and has started the last seven for the Leopards at safety. He is currently sixth on the team in tackles (44).
- His top game this season came against Bucknell when he made a career-high 10 tackles and picked off a pass.
- That followed a nine-tackle game at Harvard. He has registered four games with seven or more tackles this season.
