Wyoming's 95 total student-athletes ranked as the most among all Mountain West member schools, which includes 11 universities that compete in multiple conference sponsored sports, as well as affiliate members Colorado College, that competes only in women's soccer, and Hawai'i, that competes only in football. Utah State had the second most with 94 student-athletes earning the honor followed by 93 by Fresno State.

To be eligible for selection, student-athletes must have completed at least one academic term at the member institution while maintaining a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better and must have competed in 50 percent of the team's completed varsity contests.

Some latitude is permitted to accommodate those student-athletes who were injured and unable to compete in the required number of games.

The Mountain West also names an Academic All-Conference Team for winter and spring sports that will be released later in the year:
