Pac-12 Football 2015 All-Conference Team

Athlon projects the Pac-12's best for 2015.

The Pac-12 has emerged as college football’s No. 2 conference over the last few seasons, and there’s no shortage of talent returning to the league in 2015. This conference is known for its offense, but the Pac-12 has a good core of proven talent returning on defense.

 

Athlon Sports released its full predictions for the Pac-12 last week. Now, it’s time to take a look at the best of the best and honor the top players in the league with a release of first, second, third and fourth all-conference teams for 2015.

 

An important note on the all-conference teams: These are based on how players will perform in 2015. Career statistics and awards matter in the evaluation, but choosing players for the 2015 all-conference team is largely based on predicting and projecting the best for the upcoming year.
