Marcus Allen, RB — USC*

Elway or Marcus Allen could easily have carried this class on their own. Together, they form a Pac-12 duo that’s impossible to beat. In the NFL, they were bitter AFC West rivals.

By the time Allen retired, he held the record for most rushing touchdowns in a career with 123. The six-time Pro Bowler was the first player with more than 10,000 yards rushing and 5,000 receiving.

Terry Donahue, Coach — UCLA

The forgotten man in the 2000 Hall of Fame class, Donahue amassed a 151-74-8 record at his alma mater. His 98 wins as Bruins head coach are the most in conference history.

John Elway, QB — Stanford*

Where to begin with Elway? He left Stanford with just about every Cardinal passing record, was named an All-American and was a No. 1 pick. As a pro, he went on to win league and Super Bowl MVP awards and is among the most clutch quarterbacks of all time.
