SAN MATEO, California -- Following the loss of senior All-Americans Peter Kuest and Rhett Rasmussen, BYU men's golf is ranked fifth in the 2020-21 WCC preseason poll. 

Pepperdine, currently ranked No. 1 in Division I men's golf, was picked to win the conference with eight first place votes. San Francisco edged nationally ranked San Diego (No. 25) for second place in the poll and garnered one vote for first place.
