2014 AP All-America Team includes 15 Pac-12 players, six first-teamers
There's a definite purple and gold tinge to the Associated Press All-America first team this year.
The Washington Huskies placed three players on the AP's first team - tied for the most of any squad in the nation - as part of the 15 Pac-12 players who earned All-American honors in 2015.
Both the SEC and Pac-12 placed 15 players on the All-America teams, more than any conference in the nation.
Defensive tackle Danny Shelton and linebacker Hau'oli Kikaha were both named to the first squad, as was Shaq Thompson as an all-purpose player. In addition, Oregon's Marcus Mariota (quarterback) and Ifo Ekpre-Olomu (cornerback), Arizona linebacker Scooby Wright and Utah punter Tom Hackett each earned first-team nods as well.
In total, the Ducks led the way by placing four players on the three All-America teams, while the Huskies and USC Trojans each saw three players earn spots. Here's a look at each of the Pac-12's AP All-Americans.
