Athlon Sports named sophomore punter Cole Leininger a second-team all-Pac-12 selection and freshman Khalfani Muhammad a third-team pick as kickoff return specialist.

Senior placekicker Vincenzo D’Amato was named to the all-Pac-12 third team by College Sports Madness.

    At least someone recognized my man Khalfani.

    The Athlon voting panel must have missed the USC game, where Mr. Leininger handed the Trojans two touchdowns with some very poor kicks. He was removed from the game in the second half. And I thought Khalfani was far better as a running back and catching passes out of the backfield. There were a couple of games where I was screaming at the tube for him to take a knee and bring it out to the 25. Not his fault because there were special teams breakdowns a plenty with all the freshmen pressed into action.
