2012 Mountain West Preseason Predictions: Boise State Picked To Win MWC Title By Media

On Tuesday, preseason predictions from media members were released during the ongoing 2012 Mountain West Media Day festivities, and the Boise State Broncos are the clear favorite to capture the MWC title. The Broncos have eight returning starters (five offensive, three defensive) from the team that finished in the top-10 in both polls last season, so the early favoritism is to be expected. Meanwhile, Air Force is projected to finish sixth in the conference standings and Colorado State clocks in at No. 8.

Here is a look at the predicted order of finish in the Mountain West Conference for 2012, via the MWC website:
