San Diego State was picked to finish third in the Mountain West Conference this season in a preseason poll released today by the conference.
TCU was selected to repeat as conference champion in the vote of conference head coaches and selected media members. The Horned Frogs were followed by BYU, the Aztecs, New Mexico, UNLV, Utah and Air Force.
Three SDSU players were voted preseason all-conference — outfielder Brandon Glover, third baseman Nick Romero and pitcher Stephen Strasburg. BYU had four players and TCU three players on the 14-player all-conference team.
