Smith was named co-Pac-12 Coach of the Year, in a vote taken by Pac-12 coaches.

In all, the Beavers had 19 all-conference selections, most in the Pac-12, including five first-team selections, which tied USC for the most. 

Among the first-team selections for Oregon State was West Salem graduate Anthony Gould, who was voted first-team return specialist. He has two punt returns for touchdowns this season for the Beavers. 

The other first-team selections for Oregon State were: Jack Colletto (all-purpose), Omar Speights (linebacker), Rejzohn Wright (defensive back) and Damien Martinez (running back), who also was the conference’s Offensive Freshman of the Year. 

The five first-team all-conference selections are the most for Oregon State since 2009, when it had seven. 

The No. 17 Beavers are set to face Florida at 11:30 a.m. Dec. 17 in the Las Vegas Bowl.
