Since the inception of the MWC in 1999, here is how the schools are ranked, by number of 1st team citations received:
TCU-14 (TCU joined in 2005)
BYU has had at least one all-conference 1st team selection on offense every year but 2003, and at least one all-conference 1st team selection on defense every year but 2005.
Utah has had at least one all-conference 1st team selection on defense every year, and this is the first year Utah did not have at least one player picked to the all-conference offensive 1st team.
For the 3rd year in a row and 5th time in 9 years, BYU had the all-conference 1st team quarterback.
Despite his "2nd team status," Harvey Unga is 89 yards away from becoming only the 18th freshman in NCAA history to rush for 1300 yards in a season.
Unga needs 25 carries to tie the BYU single season record for carries in a season (252, Ronney Jenkins in 1998).
With 269 yards passing against UCLA, Max Hall will surpass John Beck's passing yardage total from his senior season (Note: Beck missed the Utah State game in 2006, so his totals are from 12 games, not 13).
Bronco is 12-2 in games played in November and December.
Only five teams have more wins than BYU (21) in the last 2 seasons:
23-Hawaii, Boise State and Ohio State
22-Oklahoma and Florida
Of course, all five teams have played in BCS bowls.
BYU has had 300+ yards of total offense in every one of the games Bronco Mendenhall and Robert Anae have coached together.
BYU has scored on 32 consecutive trips into the Blue Zone (not counting ends of games when BYU was running out the clock).
