San Jose State finished third with 130 points while Idaho was selected fourth with 102 points followed by New Mexico State (95), Texas State (57) and UTSA (43).

The media also voted on preseason players of the year, with Louisiana Tech wide receiver Quinton Patton voted the Offensive Player of the Year and San Jose State defensive lineman Travis Johnson named Defensive Player of the Year.
