Pac-12 Media Poll: USC, Oregon Picked To Finish First In Their Divisions

With the Pac-12 Media Day about to get underway in Los Angeles, the media polls were released, giving us fodder for the upcoming season. As expected, Oregon leads the way in the Pac-12 North, with USC the top vote-getter in the South. USC, however, cannot play in the Pac-12 Championship, meaning the second-place team in the South would step-in and play for the title.

The Washington Huskies fared well in the Pac-12 media poll, picking up 142 points to finish third in the North. Stanford is second and garnered 13 first-place votes. The Washington State Cougars brought up the rear, as expected, with 51 points.

In the South, Arizona State is your surprise second-place finisher, just behind USC. Newcomer Utah is in third-place, with Arizona garnering one first-place vote in its fourth-place spot. UCLA and Colorado bring up the rear, with the Buffaloes only picking up 46 points.
