Which Former Mountain West Football Stars Are On XFL Rosters?
The Super Bowl is in the books, but the new spring football league kicks off this weekend with familiar Mountain West names.
There is no football off-season.
College football’s national championship is nearly a month behind us at this point and the Super Bowl has finally brought the NFL season to a close, but that just clears the way for the revitalized XFL, football’s newest spring upstart.
Ten of the Mountain West’s twelve teams landed at least one player on the league’s eight rosters. San Diego State leads the way in that regard with four players, while Fresno State and Wyoming each have three apiece.
The season kicks off on Saturday, February 8, with the majority games slated to be broadcast on ABC, ESPN, Fox, and FS1. Click here for the full schedule.
