2008 CFN M-West Player of the Year

Brian Johnson, QB Utah
The veteran was the steady rock for the nation's lone unbeaten team. He came up with one of the biggest drives of the college football season, and the biggest drive in the history of Utah football, leading the way to the win over TCU, but that paled in comparison to the tremendous 336-yard, three touchdown performance to beat Alabama in the Sugar Bowl. He finished the year with 27 touchdown passes and just nine interceptions, with only three in the final seven games.

Defensive Player of the Year - Jerry Hughes, DE TCU
The entire TCU defense was terrific, but it was Hughes who was the ring-leader. From his personal destruction of BYU, to the game-sealing stop against Boise State, the junior was an unstoppable pass rushing force who led the nation with 15 sacks and 19.5 tackles for loss. More than just a pass rushing specialist, he required attention on every play.
