Freshman quarterback Marcus Mariota is among five Ducks named to the first team all-Pac-12 squad. Mariota is on pace to set a record for completion percentage by a freshman and is the Pac-12 leader in pass efficiency.

Joining Mariota on the first team offense is running back Kenjon Barner, who tied an Oregon record with 21 rushing touchdowns this season, and offensive lineman Hroniss Grasu.

Senior defensive end Dion Jordan and corner back Ifo Ekpre Olomu were each also named first team all-conference.
