Utah senior defensive tackle Star Lotulelei's consistent, dominating play and Reggie Dunn's electrifying returns earned both players spots on the 2012 All-Pac-12 Conference first team.
Lotulelei led the Pac-12 and is tied for second in the nation in fumble recoveries (4) and has a team-high 11 tackles for loss and five sacks.
Dunn had four 100-yard kickoff returns for touchdowns and averaged 51.3 yards per return.
Senior offensive lineman Sam Brenner made the second team. Players earning honorable mention were running back John White, defensive back Brian Blechen, defensive lineman Nate Fakahafua, defensive lineman Joe Kruger, tight end Jake Murphy, offensive lineman Jeremiah Poutasi, linebacker Trevor Reilly, defensive back Eric Rowe, punter Sean Sellwood and offensive lineman Tevita Stevens.
The teams were determined by votes from the conference coaches.
