Two USC Trojans and three UCLA Bruins earned All-Pac-12 first team awards, the conference announced on Monday.

USC's accolades were led by sophomore wide receiver Marqise Lee who earned Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year. He was also the only player to be named on all 12 coaches' ballots to the first team. USC Trojans offensive lineman Khaled Holmes was also named to the first team offense.

Lee's teammate Leonard Williams was also named the Freshman Defensive Player of the Year. The defensive end had 7.5 sacks and 13 tackles for loss during the regular season -- good for second best on USC. He didn't earn either first or second team defensive honors.

UCLA linebacker Anthony Jones and punter Jeff Locke both earned first team honors for their respective positions. Senior UCLA Bruins running back Johnathan Franklin found himself on the second team All-Pac-12 offensive squad.

Both Locke and Holmes were also named to the Pac-12 All-Academic Football Team.
