Oregon running back LaMichael James is not only the Pac-10's leading Heisman Trophy candidate, he's pretty darn smart, too.

James earned a first-team spot on Pac-10 All-Academic Football Team. Stanford QB Andrew Luck, the conference's No. 2 Heisman candidate, is on the second-team.

Also on the team Stanford fullback/linebacker Owen Marecic and California linebacker Mike Mohamed, who previously were named National Football Foundation Scholar-Athlete Award winners and are among the finalists for the William V. Campbell Trophy, known as the academic Heisman.

Mohamed earned his third consecutive first-team academic honor. Also on the first-team for the third time are offensive lineman Micah Hannam and safety Chima Nwachukwu -- both of Washington State -- and Oregon State linebacker Cameron Collins.

Washington State led the Pac-10 with seven first-team members. Stanford had four, Oregon and Arizona three, Arizona State, Oregon State and UCLA two and Washington and California one. USC didn't have any.

Stanford had seven players on the second-team. Cal and Oregon State had four, Oregon three, Washington and Arizona two, UCLA, USC and Washington State one. Arizona State didn't have any players on the second-team.

To be eligible for selection to the academic team, a student-athlete must have a minimum 3.0 overall grade-point average and be either a starter or significant substitute.
