For the Bobcats, senior linebacker Troy Andersen and senior offensive tackle Lewis Kidd were named to the first-team. For the Griz, senior defensive back Justin Ford and sophomore punter Brian Buschini, who has since transferred to the FBS to be a Nebraksa Cornhusker, were also put on the list.

Ford had the most interceptions in the FCS (9) and Andersen is up for the Buck Buchanan award, which is given out the day before the FCS Championship game.

Montana State junior running back Isaiah Ifanse and the Griz junior linebacker Patrick O'Connell were named the second-team. O'Connell, like Andersen, is up for the Buck Buchanan award as well.
