Headlined by Heisman Trophy winner, Reggie Bush, the Pac 10 conference dominated the skill positions on the AP All-American team. Only Texas QB Vince Young and Maryland TE Vernon Davis prevented the Pac 10 from completing a clean sweep of all skill position players on the first team, even UCLA tailback Maurice Drew was named first team all-purpose player.
