SDSU Picked To Finish Second In Preseason Conference Poll

Wednesday, July 26, 2017

(From the SDSU sports desk)

ST. LOUIS - Last year's Missouri Valley Football Conference co-champions appear to be on a collision course again in 2017.

A single vote separates top pick North Dakota State from second-place South Dakota State in the MVFC pre-season poll, which was released July 25. It marks the tightest vote for a pre-season favorite in league history. NDSU picked up 21 of 40 first-place votes and a total of 380 points, while the Jackrabbits earned the other 19 first-place votes and 379 points. Youngstown State was tabbed third with 290 points.

In nine previous seasons as a league member, SDSU has finished at or higher than its preseason selection seven times. In 2016, the Jackrabbits were picked to finish third before winning a share of their first-ever MVFC title.

Northern Iowa (255 points) and Illinois State (246) completed the upper half of the poll, which was conducted among league coaches and sports information directors, as well as select media. Rounding out the poll were Western Illinois (188), South Dakota (182), Southern Illinois (132), Missouri State (81) and Indiana State (67).

The league is coming off a season in which four teams - NDSU, SDSU, Youngstown State and Illinois State - represented the conference in the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs. The MVFC has had four or more playoff teams in three straight seasons. A pre-season favorite has claimed the league crown 19 times (in 31 previous polls).

North Dakota State was picked to win the league last season, and the Bison shared last year's title with SDSU. Valley Football is celebrating its 33rd season in 2017. In its first 32 seasons the league owns seven national crowns.
