Love leads the way on All-Pac-12 team

No surprise here: Stanford's Bryce Love leads The Associated Press All-Pac-12 Conference football team.

Love was named the AP's All-Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year by unanimous vote, and also earned first-team honors at running back. It was the latest of many honors this season for the junior, who is one of three finalists for the Heisman Trophy.

Love, whose Heisman campaign social media hashtag was (hash)HeismanLove, joins Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield and Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson. The winner will be revealed at the Downtown Athletic Club in New York on Saturday.

Love is averaging 164.4 yards a game, tops among Power 5 running backs. He's averaging 8.3 yards per carry, has 17 touchdowns and set the FBS record with 12 runs of at least 50 yards this season. He ran for 1,973 total yards this season.

Among the other top AP honors: USC's Clay Helton was named Coach of the Year, Washington State's Hercules Mata'afa was named Defensive Player of the Year, and Arizona's Khalil Tate was named Newcomer of the Year for his stunning breakout season. All four recipients were first-time winners.

USC quarterback Sam Darnold was named first-team quarterback, while crosstown rival Josh Rosen was named QB for the second team.
