Eight Pac-12 players were named first-team preseason All-Americans by Athlon's on Monday, while 11 others were named to the other three teams. Oregon, Stanford and USC each had a pair of first-team selections.
Over the last two weeks we've been taking a look at some players who had big springs for their respective teams. Some are upperclassmen finally coming into their own, some are younger guys taking advantage of open spots on the depth chart, while others are leap frogging some older players and making a name for themselves.

The Pac-12 has seen a flurry of defensive coordinator movement over the last couple of weeks -- starting with the power struggle for former Washington defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox to the recent exoduses of Stanford's Derek Mason to Vanderbilt as head coach and UCLA's Lou Spanos to the Tennessee Titans as linebackers coach.
It's never too early to start looking ahead to what's in store for next year's college football season. Per usual, we've got you covered. Three major pieces are out today -- including one from our very own Ted Miller -- who looks at some of the questions that will sear on our brains until kickoff 2014.
Changing the perception of a league is no easy task. And for the Pac-12, bucking its offense-first image may never happen. As long as Oregon keeps gobbling up points by the minute and yards by the mile; as long as Rich Rodriguez does what RichRod does and there are Air Raids and Bear Raids about, offense will always be associated with the Pac-12.
