Nevada senior defensive tackle Brett Roy was named to Phil Steele's Midseason All-American Third-Team on Thursday.
Roy leads the nation in tackles for loss and in his fifth in the country in sacks. He is coming off a four-TFL, one-sack performance against UNLV last week in which Nevada shut-out the Rebels, 37-0. Roy was named the WAC Player of the Week on the defensive side of the ball.
Roy, Matthews and Barker, along with senior linebacker Brandon M. Marshall, were named to the publication's Midseason All-WAC first team. Sophomore Jack Reynoso earned second-team honors while running back Mike Ball, center Jeff Meads, defensive end Kaelin Burnett and linebacker James-Michael Johnson were named to the third team.
