League champion UCF and West Division champion SMU led the All-Conference USA selections Tuesday with five first-team selections each. They also had the most total selections with eight a piece.
The Knights had three first-team selections from its No. 1 defense: DE Bruce Miller (55 tackles, 11.5 tackles for loss, seven sacks) and defensive backs Kemal Ishmael (team-high 82 tackles, two interceptions, two forced fumbles) and Josh Robinson (55 tackles, two interceptions, team-best 14 passes defended). Offensive lineman Jah Reid and kickoff returner Quincy McDuffie (league-high 32.7 avg. and two returns for touchdowns) also earned first-team honors.
SMU has three first-teamers on offense: RB Zach Line, who led the league in rushing with 1,391 yards and 10 touchdowns; OL Kelvin Beachum, who helped pave the way for Line to gain those yards; and WR Aldrick Robinson (league-high 1,225 yards and a league-best-tying 13 receiving touchdowns).
C-USA will name its individual award winners on Wednesday.
