All-Pac-12 2016 football teams announced

With nine first-team selections, highlighted by Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year Jake Browning, Washington dominated the All-Pac-12 team.

Arizona entered the Territorial Cup winless in Pac-12 play and with the league's worst point differential by over 100 points (-184). The Wildcats ended up blowing out ASU 56-35 and knocking their rivals out of bowl eligibility.

Arizona State's bowl hopes are all but over. The Sun Devils' multi-year APR score of 960 doesn't figure to be high enough for them to be among the 5-7 teams allowed to participate in the postseason. It would likely take several others to decline the opportunity, which is technically possible, but doubtful to occur.
