WAC media arrive at the Salt Lake City Anniversary Inn Airport Hilton today to begin a three-day WAC Football Preview with the biggest news sure to be news we all already know: Boise State is going to be the preseason favorite. The only drama is if they'll be a unanimous choice.

To find out, I've compiled the available WAC preseason polls from the members of the media who know how to blog (not as many as you might think), and as far as I can tell, no one is picking against the Broncos. Of course, I have yet to see Mike Prater's poll.

After the jump, check out the media picks that have hit the web thus far, and add your own WAC predictions in the comments. (Please, no picking Fresno No. 1.)

(Note: This list will be updated as more WAC picks become available. If I missed one, please send it my way.)

(Note #2: My favorite media pick thus far is Troy Oppie's choice of Utah State as the number two team in the conference. His reasoning: "I'm Keith Hernandez!")
