SAN FRANCISCO –– For the first time in the 56-year history of the conference preseason poll, STANFORD was chosen the favorite to win the 2016 Pac-12 Conference football title in a vote of 33 media members who cover Pac-12 football. The Cardinal received 20 votes to earn the preseason favorite pick. Stanford collected 186 points for the top spot in the North Division, holding 24 first-place votes. UCLA, which picked up three votes to win the Pac-12 Championship, tops the Pac-12 South as the Bruins collected 19 first-place votes and totaled 180 points to edge out USC. The Trojans, who garnered the second-most championship votes with five, tallied 173 points.

WASHINGTON was picked to finish second in the Pac-12 North Division, collecting 163 points with eight first-place votes. The Huskies garnered four votes as the Pac-12 Champion, while UTAH picked up one vote to win the Pac-12 Football Championship Game.
