NCAA Football: Pac-12 Media Day Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

After winning the first Pac-12 title in school history, the media around the conference has picked Utah to repeat as conference champions. Other schools to get first-place votes were Oregon and USC.

Here’s the full media poll:

1. Utah (26)

2. Oregon (2)

3. USC (5)


5. Oregon State

6. Washington

7. Washington State

8. Stanford

9. California

10. Arizona State

11. Arizona

12. Colorado

The media thinks Utah will top Oregon in the conference title game.

The Pac-12 Football Championship Game will now be featuring the two teams with the highest conference winning percentage rather than the division champions for the first time. The game will take place on Friday, Dec. 2 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, NV, and will be on FOX.
