New, 2 comments

Devante Mays and Teriyon Gipson come in at a three-way tie for the 39th best player in our top 50 countdown.

Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

The 2016 version of the Mountain West Connection top 50 football players countdown is here and we jump up a bit as there is a tie for 39th best player.

The players are all on the offensive side of the ball with Utah State running back Devante Mays and New Mexico running back Teriyon Gipson.

Gipson and Mays probably have the best chance to rank higher in an end of season list as Gipson is now the main back for the Lobos amd Mays had a strong second half.

Here are the staff picks and composite rankings.

(Ed. Note: SJSU's Tyler Winston was on this list prior to him being inelligible.)
