LAS VEGAS >> The University of Hawaii was picked to finish seventh in the 10-team Mountain West Conference, according to a media poll released this morning at the league's media preview. 

Boise State was picked No. 1. 

The Warriors are seventh with 116 points. 

"It's a lucky number in Vegas," UH defensive end Paipai Falemalu said. "I'm not surprised where we were picked. We didn't have too good of a season (in 2011). We're going to keep working hard."

Told of the prediction, UH head coach Norm Chow said: "It's better than finishing 10th."

He added: "I don't think too much about it. We have to play the game. If we're pleased with that, we'd let that be. We're going to have to prove ourselves. That's not a big deal."

Falemalu was the lone Warrior named to the 2012 Preseason All-MWC team. 

Here's the poll: 

1. Boise State (27 No. 1 votes) — 296

2. Nevada — 244

3. Fresno State (2) — 231

4. Wyoming — 213

5. San Diego State — 173

6. Air Force — 170

7. Hawaii — 116

8. Colorado State — 111

9. UNLV — 63

10. New Mexico
