Yep, the start of a new season is right around the corner.
The Pac-12 Tuesday morning became the latest to release its preseason media poll, with the group covering that conference tabbing the USC Trojans as far and away the favorite to win the league title in 2012.
Of the 123 media members who took part in the poll, a total of 102 of them picked the Trojans to win the conference. Defending conference champ Oregon was next with 18 votes, with Arizona State (?) (three) the only other school receiving votes.
Division-wise, the Trojans were, obviously, the prohibitive favorites to win the South with 117 first-place votes. The Ducks are predicted to win the North in a landslide with the same number of votes.
Interestingly, Arizona State, picked by three individuals to win the Pac-12, was picked to finish fifth in its own division, ahead of only Colorado.
Anyway, below is the full list of voting results…
1. Oregon (117) 732
2. Stanford (5) 533
3. Washington 502
4. California (1) 382
5. Washington State 228
6. Oregon State 205
1. USC (117) 729
2. Utah (1) 514
3. UCLA (2) 435
4. Arizona 385
5. Arizona State (3) 353
6. Colorado 164
