It’s finally time to release our SIS All-Conference teams. We used our all-encompassing player value stat, Total Points, along with other metrics and our scouting work as leading references in putting together our team of selections for 2023, plus some honorable mentions.

You can learn more about Total Points and the statistics referenced here.

These picks are meant to honor this season’s best-of-the-best in the Pac-12.


Position Name School
QB Michael Penix Jr. Washington
RB Bucky Irving Oregon
WR Rome Odunze Washington
WR Tetairoa McMillan Arizona
TE Tanner McLachlan Arizona
FLEX Damien Martinez Oregon State
OT Roger Rosengarten Washington
OT Jordan Morgan Arizona
OG Marcus Harper II Oregon
OG Steven Jones Oregon
OC Jackson Powers-Johnson Oregon

Michael Penix Jr. may have played his way into this spot with a great CFP, but it was a great overall season when you see he threw for the most yards, air yards, and intended air yards in all of college football, all while being pressured the 10th-most in FBS. Odunze and McMillan’s 48 Total Points put them just behind Malik Nabers for most among wide receivers in the country. 

The three-headed monster of Oregon interior linemen ranked 1st (Harper II), 4th (Jones), and 1st (Powers-Johnson) in the conference in Total Points at their respective positions, and Powers-Johnson’s Total Points Rank per Snap ranked 4th among centers in the country.


Position Name School
DT Bear Alexander USC
DT Jay Toia UCLA
EDGE Laiatu Latu UCLA
EDGE Brennan Jackson Washington State
LB Easton Mascarenas-Arnold Oregon State
LB Karene Reid Utah
CB Jabbar Muhammad Washington
CB Travis Hunter Colorado
S Kitan Oladapo Oregon State
S Akili Arnold Oregon State
FLEX Nohl Williams California

Latu and Jackson not only led the conference in Total Points among edge rushers, they led the entire country as well. Latu tied for 6th-most sacks in the country with 12 and was 2nd with 65 pressures. Travis Hunter amassed 32 Total Points on the defensive side of the ball, and while that’s not substantial compared to some of his fellow corners in the conference (given his injury cost him some time), it’s incredibly impressive since he played consistent snaps on both sides of the ball. Lastly, the Oregon State safety duo compiled 116 Total Points between them, with Oladapo accounting for 64 of them.


Position Name School
K Joshua Karty Stanford
P Ross James Oregon
Returner Zachariah Branch USC

Joshua Karty’s 22 made field goals were most in the conference and his 4 makes beyond 50 yards tied him for 3rd-best in the country. What’s more impressive is he made more field goals than he did extra points, going 21-of-21 on PATs, which unfortunately tells you a lot about Stanford’s offense this year. Ross James punted only 27 times, but his punt average ranked 4th in FBS (48.4) and net average ranked 8th (45.0), and he pinned the opposition inside the 20 on 41% of them. Branch was the only player in FBS to return at least one kick and punt for a touchdown in 2023. He averaged 22.6 yards per punt return which ranked 3rd in FBS among returners with at least 10 punt returns.
