James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

Record-setting backs highlight the 2015 All-Pac-12 football team. WASHINGTON STATE's Luke Falk and CALIFORNIA's Jared Goff share first team honors after the two quarterbacks set school marks for touchdown passes in a season - Falk with 36, Goff with 37. The two were just the eighth and ninth quarterbacks in Pac-12 history to throw for more than 4,000 yards in a season - Falk with 4,266 and Goff with 4,252. STANFORD running back Christian McCaffrey set a Pac-12 record with 3,305 all-purpose yards and is just the third player in FBS history to post more than 3,000 all-purpose yards in a single season. UTAH punter Tom Hackett has earned first-team honors for the third straight year, while USC linebacker Su'a Cravens earns first team honors for the second time. The Pac-12 Player of the Year honors and Coach of the Year will be unveiled Tuesday night by the Pac-12 Networks on Inside Pac-12 Football that airs at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET.
