Which current Mountain West college football programs are the greatest of all-time according to the UPI and USA Today Coaches final polls?

Using a ranking system taking all the AP final college football polls and assigning 25 points to the national champion, 24 for the final No. 2 team, 23 for the No. 3 team on down, it’s Boise State’s world and everyone else is just hanging out. However, Air Force and Wyoming are represented well, and 11 of the current programs have finished ranked at some point.

One note on this – this is made up of current Mountain West programs and factoring in their histories. Obviously many of these programs weren’t in the Mountain West – and there wasn’t even a conference in this form – starting in 1950.
