No WSU Cougars were named to the First-Team, but punter Oscar Draguicevich and junior offensive lineman Abe Lucas were named to the Second-Team along with UW Huskies sophomore defensive back Trent McDuffie and sophomore linebacker Efdefuan Ulofoshio.

Both programs had a number of players named as All-Pac-12 honorable mentions as well.

The UW Huskies finished at 3-1 and in first place in the Pac-12 North in the program’s first year under new head coach Jimmy Lake, but due to COVID-19, the team was unable to play in the Pac-12 Championship Game.
