Conference USA Player of the Year

Kevin Smith, RB UCF
I
t wasn't just that Smith led the nation in rushing with a historic 2,448-yard, 29 touchdown season, it's that he carried the team throughout and was able to come through down the stretch when the team needed him the most. 43 carries at Southern Miss. 41 at UAB. 46 against UTEP. He was a workhorse over the second half of the season before taking the Knights to the Conference USA title with a 284-yard, four touchdown day against Tulsa.

Defensive Player of the Year - Chris Chamberlain, LB Tulsa
The speedy senior was all over the field trying to save a woeful defense. He made 92 solo tackles alone with 148 on the year with three interceptions. While he didn't get into the backfield all that often, he was busy making plays everywhere else thanks to a poor defensive front. He finished a strong career with 287 tackles.
