Here's the way the media that covers Pac-10 football sees the league race going this season:
1. USC (38 first-place votes)
2. Arizona State
4. California (one first-place vote)
6. Oregon State
10. Washington State
(This poll agrees with the ballot I sent in for places 1-4 and 9-10. However, I had Arizona at five, UW at six, UCLA at seven and OSU at eight.)
The media poll has picked the correct conference champion eight seasons in a row, but only 25 of 47 times since the poll began.
