Mountain West Championship Players of the Game

The Broncos are the champions. Who helped them get there?

NCAA Football: Mountain West Football Championship-Boise State at UNLV Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Boise State overcame a season full of adversity to take home the conference championship in convincing fashion. The game was filled with some impressive performances for the Broncos. Let’s take a look at the top performers from the Mountain West Championship game.

Offensive Player of the Game

Ashton Jeanty (Boise State)

Taylen Green was deserving of the award and his first half performance set the tone for the Bronco win. But when the Broncos needed to put the game away, they leaned on their best player, Ashton Jeanty. Jeanty carried the ball 21 times for 153 yards and a touchdown. We will see what the future has in store for Jeanty, but there is no debating that his season is one of the best in Boise State history.

Defensive Player of the Game

A’Marion McCoy (Boise State)

I was a little surprised to see Teubner get the award from the Mountain West. He played a great game, but McCoy played a vital role in slowing down the best wide receiver in the Mountain West in Ricky White. McCoy had six tackles and added an interception that he returned 20 yards.

Special Teams Player of the Game

Jonah Dalmas (Boise State)

Dalmas continued to be Old Reliable. The senior kicker made all three of his field goal attempts, including a long of 50 yards. If Dalmas moves on, he will go down as the greatest kicker in Boise State history.
