Bucannon, four other Cougs earn Pac-12 honors
WSU redshirt-senior center Elliott Bosch, freshman wide receiver River Cracraft, senior kicker Andrew Furney and senior cornerback Damante Horton each received honorable mention.
Bucannon becomes the first Cougar to earn first team accolades since wideout Brandon Gibson in 2007 and the first defensive back since safety Eric Frampton in 2006. Bucannon tied for the team lead and tied for fourth in the conference with five interceptions. He also forced three fumbles, recovered two, tallied 4.5 tackles-for-loss and registered four double-digit tackle performances. His 74 solo tackles are the tenth-most in the country this season.
Bosch earns his second straight All-Pac-12 honorable mention after starting all 12 games at center for the second consecutive year. Cracraft earns his first career all-conference accolade after making 37 receptions for 489 yards and two touchdowns. He started nine games as true freshmen and was second on the team averaging 13.2 yards-per-catch.
Furney received his second career all-conference honor after earning a spot on the second team last season. The Burlington, Wash. native 15-of-19 on field goal attempts this season. He owns the third-most makes (46) in school history, the third-most 50+ yard kicks (4) and second highest field goal percentage (76.6, 46-60) in school history.
Horton picks up his second career All-Pac-12 honorable mention honor, after receiving the same recognition in 2011. The Oakland, Calif. native tied for the team-lead and was tied for fourth in the conference with five interceptions, three he returned for touchdowns (USC, Southern Utah, Utah). Horton made 43 tackles and broke up three passes.
