Mountain West Football 2015 All-Conference Team

Athlon honors the best in the MW for 2015.

The Mountain West hopes for a repeat of 2014 this year, as Boise State was the top Group of 5 team and played in one of college football’s biggest bowl games. The Broncos are the favorite to reach that mark once again this season, and there’s depth in the Mountain West with Utah State, Colorado State and San Diego State.

 

Athlon Sports released its full predictions for the Mountain West last week. Now, it’s time to take a look at the best of the best and honor the top players in the league with a release of first, second, third and fourth all-conference teams for 2015.

 

An important note on the all-conference teams: These are based on how players will perform in 2015. Career statistics and awards matter in the evaluation, but choosing players for the 2015 all-conference team is largely based on predicting and projecting the best for the upcoming year.
