The preseason Mountain West Conference coaches poll will be released Thursday, February 3, at 10 a.m. MT.
It's almost a 100 percent certainty that San Diego State and Brigham Young will be picked first and second, though the order is unknown. The Cougars have the higher preseason ranking in both national polls, though a lot of so-called experts predict the Aztecs will win the conference. San Diego State returns 2010 MWC Pitcher of the Year Samantha Beasley.
If we had a vote, we'd go this way in our predictions:
1. San Diego State
4. Colorado State
6. New Mexico
