The best of the best from a memorable decade.

The decade in Mountain West football began with an upset. Unranked Utah defeated #15 Pittsburgh at home on September 2, 2010, and in doing so set the tone for the ten years that followed. One Rose Bowl, one Fiesta Bowl, and seven All-Americans later, the conference has a lot to live up to at it heads into its third decade of existence.

As the 2010s come to a close, we wanted to look back to highlight the best players from the decade. If you disagree with our choices, of course, feel free to let us know what you’d have done differently on Twitter or Facebook.
