Viggers was a third-team all-region selection for the second straight year. Also a two-time first-team all-conference pick, Viggers nailed 44 of 44 extra-point tries in 2010 and was 10 of 17 on field goal attempts.

Hill, a second-team all-conference choice, made 11 tackles for loss with 3.5 sacks, a pass breakup, a fumble recovery and two blocked kicks. He had 40 tackles overall, with 22 solo stops.
