Four Bruins were named to Football All-America teams in recent days. The Associated Press squad, which was released on Dec. 14, included junior linebacker Akeem Ayers and junior safety Rahim Moore as third-team selections. Ayers was a finalist for the this season's Butkus Award, while Moore was a semifinalist for the Thorpe Award.

Sophomore punter Jeff Locke and Ayers each received honorable mention All-America recognition from Sports Illustrated (si.com). Locke ranked first in the Pac-10 and fifth in the NCAA with his average of 45.84 yards per kick.
