Jared Goff was named to the 2015 All-Pac-12 football team Tuesday, the first Cal quarterback to be named first-team All-Pac-12 since Aaron Rodgers was honored in 2004. Goff shares first-team honors with Washington State quarterback Luke Falk.

The junior led the Bears to a 7-5 regular-season record and bowl eligibility for the first time since 2011. Goff’s 37 touchdown passes this season led the Pac-12 and were good for third in the nation, while he ranked second in the conference and fourth nationally with 4,252 passing yards. Goff owns 26 school records, including career passing yards (11,733), completions (952) and touchdown passes (90).

Joining Goff on first-team offense is junior wide receiver Kenny Lawler, who led the team in touchdown receptions this year with 10 and whose 24 career touchdowns rank third all-time in program history.

Tight end Stephen Anderson, offensive lineman Chris Borrayo, defensive lineman Kyle Kragen, safety Stefan McClure, linebacker Hardy Nickerson and wide receiver Bryce Treggs earned All-Pac-12 honorable mention.
