The Ducks have seven honorable mention players: wide receiver/return specialist Bralon Addison, wide receiver Josh Huff, offensive lineman Tyler Johnstone; defensive linemen Wade Keliikipi and Tony Washington, linebacker Derrick Malone and running back Byron Marshall.

The Beavers put six players on the honorable mention list: offensive lineman Grant Enger, right end Connor Hamlett, quarterback Sean Mannion, defensive backs Ryan Murphy and Steven Nelson and Terron Ward, for special teams.
