Bowl season is done, so who played the best?

Mountain West bowl season is in the books with a modest 3-3 record, but it was very, very close to being 6-0. Utah State fell in overtime to New Mexico State, Colorado State losses to Marshall, 31-28, and San Diego State dropped an exciting 42-35 game vs. Army.

There were some great performances on both sides of the ball and the best offensive player, even in a loss, has to be San Diego State’s Rashaad Penny for his 221 rushing yards and four touchdowns.

The best defensive player would go to Boise State’s Leighton Vander Esch who was all over the field in the win over Oregon with 10 solo tackles a trio of tackles for a loss, a sack and a forced fumble.
