Utah and USC tied with a conference-best six players named to the All-Pac-12 football preseason first team.
A total of 13 Utes were included on the All-Pac-12 teams, which was released by the conference Tuesday afternoon. The teams were voted on by media members that cover Pac-12 football.
The six Utah players on the first team are running back Tavion Thomas, tight end Brant Kuithe and offensive lineman Braeden Daniels on offense; and cornerback Clark Phillips III, safety Cole Bishop and defensive lineman Van Fillinger on defense.
USC also had six players on the first team — quarterback Caleb Williams, wide receiver Mario Williams, wide receiver Jordan Addison, offensive lineman Andrew Vorhees, defensive lineman Tuli Tuipulotu and return specialist Travis Dye.
Pac-12 football media day will be held Friday in Los Angeles.
