2017 All-Pac-12 Team & Top 30 Players

CFN Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year

RB Bryce Love, Jr. Stanford

The Heisman runner-up would’ve blown past the 2,000-yard mark with ease if he didn’t suffer the high ankle sprain halfway through the season. Even as hurt as he was, 1,973 yards and 17 scores averaging over eight yards per carry – not that bad.

CFN All-Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year

Hercules Mata’afa, Jr. Washington State

A dominant force no matter where he lined up up front for the Cougars, the 6-2, 252-pound force of will made 43 tackles with 9.5 sacks and 21.5 tackles for loss. There were times when he took over games by himself.

CFN Pac-12 Coach of the Year

Rich Rodriguez, Arizona

It wasn’t a great year for Pac-12 coaches. Clay Helton? USC won the Pac-12, but it was good enough to get to the College Football Playoff, and didn’t. Chris Petersen? David Shaw? Nah.

Justin Wilcox at Cal had a nice year, but Rodriguez’s season was a bit better. Arizona went from being all banged up in 3-9 2-16 season to a fun and thrilling 7-5 squad. The knock? That Khalil Tate guy might have been the better option to start the year.
