It won’t take long for Boise State to make an impact in their new home, the Mountain West Conference.
At least not according to the media’s preseason voting.
The Broncos received 28 of 31 first place votes to win the Mountain West this season and possibly contend for another BCS bowl. To do so, though, they’ll have to get by seven other MWC members, including projected second place TCU. The Horned Frogs, coming off a Rose Bowl victory over Wisconsin, received the other three first place votes.
Here’s how the entire conference is projected to shake out:
1. Boise State (28 votes) 236 points.
2. TCU (3) 208 points.
3. Air Force 176 points.
4. San Diego State 160 points.
5. Colorado State 104 points.
6. Wyoming 80 points.
7. UNLV 77 points
8. New Mexico 39 points
