Thursday Trivia: The Most Players Named All-Conference

We had one correct answer to last week’s trivia question "When was the last time BYU beat Utah by more than 7 points?" It was 1996 by a score of 37-17.

Earlier this week, the Mountain West Conference announced the 2010 all-conference team. Four Cougars received were on the first or second team, while seven others were honorable mention. Matt Reynolds (Jr., OL), Andrew Rich (Sr., DB), and Vic So’oto (Sr., DL) were members of the first team. J.J. Di Luigi (Jr., RB) was the lone second teamer. Those receiving honorable mention were Luke Ashworth (Sr., WR), Terence Brown (Jr., OL), Braden Hansen (So., OL), Shane Hunter (Sr., LB), Brian Logan (Sr., DB), Mitch Payne (Sr., K), and Jason Speredon (Sr., OL).

Congratulations to these 11 players. I think BYU was treated pretty fairly, except maybe Kyle Van Noy not getting honorable mention. In a 6-6 year no one gives BYU sympathy votes. Anyways, this week’s question is:
The year that the most BYU players were named first team all-conference was what year?
Leave your answer in the comments section. Come back next week when the answer is revealed and a new trivia question is asked.

  1. Isn't there an all-freshmen or all-newcomers team? If so, I would think a handful of BYU players (Van Noy, Hoffman, Quezada, Heaps, etc.) would make the lists or at least get some votes.

  2. All they have is a Freshman of the Year award.

    There are Freshman All-American lists, but on a conference level, it is difficult to find freshman who contributed at every position every year. And even if you do have freshman at every position, you don't want to honor a player it he really isn't good. If you only have one freshman offensive lineman, but he let his man sack the quarterback 10 times, you don't want to reward that, but you would have to because he is the only one to choose from.
