San Diego State picked 5th in preseason football poll

The Mountain West Conference preseason football poll was released this week and the San Diego State Aztecs were picked fifth by media members who cover the teams. The Aztecs did, however, garner one first-place vote.

Newcomers Nevada and Fresno State, which will play their first season in the MWC, were picked Nos. 2 and 3, respectively.

Boise State — which plays its last season in the Mountain West before heading to the Big East — was the overwhelming favorite, earning 27 of the 30 first-place votes.

San Diego State is also playing in its final season in the Mountain West, joining the Big East in football and the Big West in all other sports in 2013-14.

The league will be made up of 10 teams this season, as it also added Hawaii to the conference, but saw TCU — winners of the league last season — exit to the Big 12.

Here is the poll: 1. Boise State; 2. Nevada; 3. Fresno State; 4. Wyoming, 5. San Diego State; 6. Air Force; 7. Hawaii; 8. Colorado State; 9. UNLV; 10. New Mexico.
