SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -Defending champion Boise State has been picked to repeat in the Western Athletic Conference.
The Broncos went 8-0 in the conference last fall and has won six of the last seven WAC titles. Boise State was No. 1 in both the coaches' and media polls released Wednesday as the WAC media days opened in Salt Lake City.
Boise State received all but one No. 1 vote by the coaches, who were not allowed to vote for their own team. Nevada was picked second and received the only other No. 1 vote in the coaches' poll. Fresno State and Louisiana Tech tied for No. 3 in the coaches' poll.
Hawaii was picked fifth, followed by San Jose State, Utah State, New Mexico State and Idaho.
The media poll was nearly the same. Louisiana Tech was slightly behind Fresno State for fourth and the media voters picked New Mexico to finish last, one spot behind eighth-place Idaho.
