The Pac-12 Conference has announced the 2014 football All-Academic teams, and 3 Oregon St. players are on the first team.

Obum Gwacham, noted for his move from WR to DE this season, did not let the learning curve of the most unusual position move interfere with his other learning curve, making the first team with a 3.16 GPA in Marketing.

TE Connor Hamlett also made the first team, with a 3.24 GPA in Management.

Special Teams player Will Hopkins rounded out Oregon St.'s first team selections, with a 4.00 GPA in Business.
