Here are the best players at the mid-way point.

The college football season at the midway point we decided it was appropriate to give out some midseason awards for the Mountain West with an all-league team, coach of the year and player of the year awards.

There are always twist and turns when looking back at preseason projections to see where we totally whiffed, sorry Hawaii, and nailed well not much outside of San Jose State being at the bottom of the conference again this year.

Best Coach

Matt Wells, Utah State

It was a battle between Wells and Hawaii’s Nick Rolovich as those were the only two coaches to earn votes. The Warriors might have the biggest turnaround but it can be argued that the Aggies have been the most dominant team in the league due to its offense which is only one of two teams in the nation to average 50 points or more per game, the only other team to do that is Alabama.

Best Offensive Player

Cole McDonald, QB, Hawaii

No surprise there as McDonald has helped turn around a Warriors team that was thought to be one of the worst in the league but is now sitting at 6-2 overall and 3-0 in Mountain West play. Even with missing a game he is putting up video game numbers with 26 touchdowns to three interceptions and leads the league in quarterback rating as well. His touchdowns are 10 more than Colorado State’s K.J. Carta Samuels — and 12 more than Utah State’s Jordan Love.
