2017 Preseason USA Today Coaches Poll Top 25
Five things to know about the 2017 coaches poll

There are four Mountain West teams earning some respect in the initial USA Today coaches poll with Boise State, San Diego State, Wyoming and Colorado State representing the conference. This is a marked improvement over the 2016 preseason poll where it was only Boise State and San Diego State earning votes.

There are chances early and often for the Mountain West to make some noise and cause a few upsets this year, and just maybe get a team ranked sooner than later. There are a total of 10 teams ranked on the Mountain West schedule and another 17 receiving votes in non-conference play.

San Jose State has the toughest schedule in the Mountain West by facing three ranked teams and another four are receiving votes. There are three other tams — San Diego State, Boise State and Nevada — who have six opponents either ranked or receiving votes.
