Who has the positional edges?
Who stands out this weekend?
The Mountain West championship game is here and now it’s time to take a look at what team has the edge at each position group as voted on by our staff.
Coaching: Utah State
Quarterback: Utah State
Running Back: San Diego State
Wide Reciever/Tight End: Utah State
Offensive Line: San Diego State
Defensive Line: San Diego State
Linebackers: San Diego State
Defensive Backs: San Diego State
Special Teams: San Diego State
These rankings were pretty close overall in these votes with the Aztecs taking five positions to four over the Aggies. That makes this game interesting and should be a close one in Carson, California, between these teams.
The few position battles that were blowouts were the Utah State wide receivers but San Diego State has more blowouts in our staff vote with the running backs, offensive line and specials being 100% in favor of San Diego State. Even with those blowout positions, this game should be very close.
Our staff also voted on the most important players in this game and handed out awards.
