Big Sky Preseason Football Polls Unveiled

The Big Sky Conference has unveiled the results of their Preseason Football Media and Coaches’ Polls.

The T-Bird football team was selected to place in the 12th spot by both groups.

“We have had a couple of down years in a row, so 12th isn’t surprising,” SUU head coach Demario Warren said. “But preseason polls have never stopped us from having a great season, and this one won’t be any different.”

The Thunderbirds were selected to place eighth in both polls when they won the league in 2015. They were also selected to place seventh in both ahead of the 2017 season, where they also claimed a conference championship.

The Wildcats of Weber State were selected as the top team in the league in both polls. Montana, Montana State, Eastern Washington and Sacramento State rounded out the top-five in both polls in the same order.

Southern Utah is scheduled to open up their season on Sept. 5, hosting their regional rival Dixie State.
