The mid-major conferences are often overlooked during BCS season and Heisman voting, but these small conferences have a plethora of big game talents.
While their names aren't household and their plays rarely make SportsCenter, these 10 players are bona fide gamers.
The mid-major conferences have produced current NFL stars such as Randy Moss (pictured above at Marshall), Moss' college teammate Chad Pennington, Ben Roethlisberger (Miami-OH), LaDainian Tomlinson (TCU), Brian Urlacher (New Mexico), and Brandon Marshall (Central Florida) amongst many others.
Don't be surprised if in the near future you see one of these players joining the growing list of mid-major conference stars that make a big splash in the NFL.
*Notre Dame not included because a member of the Big East in most other sports and considered a BCS school.
