Defending RMAC champion Colorado State University-Pueblo was picked by nine of the 10 coaches to win the RMAC title again this year. The coaches weren’t allowed to pick their team.
Chadron State received the other first-place vote, but is expected to finish third. Colorado School of Mines is picked second. Adams State is picked fourth.
