Utah football is expected to finish second behind USC in the Pac-12 South, or so says media members from around the conference footprint.
Last year, the Utes' first in the conference, the media pegged them third behind USC & Arizona State. That's exactly where they finished - a third place tie with Arizona State, who was the media's pick to win the division last year since USC wasn't eligible (boy were they wrong).
USC was selected to win the Pac-12 title over Oregon, with Oregon, and Arizona State (wha?) also receiving votes to win the championship game.
