Nevada fifth-year defensive tackle Dom Peterson was named to Pro Football Network's Preseason All-America Third Team on Monday.

It is the second major preseason honor for Peterson, who last week was named a candidate for the Bednarik Award, which honors college football's top defensive player.

Over his Nevada career, Peterson has made 151 total tackles, including 42.5 tackles for loss and 22.0 sacks, which rank fifth and tied for third, respectively, in program history.

The PFN College Football All-Americans are presented with an inside look at who PFN's team of national analysts, college football local evaluators and NFL Draft scouts all think are the top players at each position across the country.

The PFN All-American lists take into consideration not only what a player has accomplished to date, but looks forward with what it expects to see based on the growth of the athlete's career. Both Group of 5 and Power-5 schools were equally nominated and discussed by the PFN team of analysts.

Nevada, with first-year head coach Ken Wilson, opens the season Aug. 27 at New Mexico State.

The Wolf Pack's home opener is set for the following week, Saturday, Sept. 3, at 2:30 p.m. against Texas State.
