Mountain West Football 2018 All-Conference Team

Athlon honors the best in the MW for 2018.

With Boise State primed for a run as college football’s top Group of 5 team for 2018, it’s no surprise coach Bryan Harsin’s team dominates the All-Mountain West Team by Athlon Sports. The Broncos have 16 selections, which is the most of any program in the conference. Utah State is next with 13 picks, followed by Fresno State with 12. San Diego State and Wyoming are tied with 11 selections, while UNLV is next with nine.

 

Athlon Sports has released its top 25 for 2018. Now, it’s time to take a look at the best of the best and honor the top players in the Mountain West with a release of first, second, third and fourth all-conference teams for 2018.

 

An important note on the all-conference teams: These are based on how players will perform in 2018. Career statistics and awards matter in the evaluation, but choosing players for the 2018 all-conference team is largely based on predicting and projecting the best for the upcoming year.
