Arizona Wildcats running back Ka'Deem Carey had a phenomenal season, breaking the school's single season rushing record with 1,757 yards on the ground. After breaking the record of the last running back to be named to the Pac-12's Offensive First Team at Arizona, Trung Candidate, Carey has earned the same honor as Candidate: he was named to the Pac-12's Offensive First Team.

Carey not only broke the school record for rushing yards, he also broke the conference record for rushing yards in a single game with 366 yards against the Colorado Buffaloes. Carey surpassed the century mark in nine of his 12 games this season.

The Wildcats also had two others given All Pac-12 honors. Quarterback Matt Scott was named to the second team after finishing the season with 3,238 yards and 24 touchdowns while also rushing for five more. His favorite target, wide receiver Austin Hill, was also named to the second team after finishing the season with 1,189 receiving yards and nine touchdowns.

Arizona also had four players named to the honorable mention list including center Kyle Quinn, safety Jared Tevis, wide receiver Dan Buckner and linebacker Jake Fischer.
