Defending Frontier Conference champion Carroll College was named the favorite to repeat as conference champions in the 2015 Preseason Coaches' Poll released Tuesday at the Frontier Conference Media Days in Great Falls.

The Saints received five of eight first-place votes, national champion Southern Oregon received the three remaining first-place votes but the Saints edged out the Raiders with 47 points to 44 points.
