Horned Frogs wide receiver Josh Doctson was on the FWAA
first team and placekicker Jaden Oberkrom is on the second team.
Previously he was honored with the Eddie Robinson Award from the FWAA
team caused a buzz in the college football world by selecting Boise State's Kellen Moore at quarterback over Auburn's Cam Newton, and by honoring as a running back Michigan's Denard Robinson - the only quarterback in the nation to out-rush Newton this season.
That's essentially what the FWAA did, and I think the organization got it right.
The Grantland Rice Trophy isn't tied to the winner of the BCS Championship game; one year earlier, when LSU won the BCS title, the FWAA awarded its national championship to Pete Carroll's boys.
When the FWAA committee convened, stripping the title from USC was the fairly easy part.
UO coach Chip Kelly was also recognized by the FWAA, earning the award for top first-year head coach in the FBS.
The FWAA freshman award was his third such all-America honor of the postseason.
In releasing the information on the finalists for the Nagurski Award, the FWAA
listed Ngata as a candidate for the Outland Trophy, which the same organization presents to the top interior lineman.
