As Pac-12 Media Day kicks off (without a media deal, still) we have our first look at the new single-division conference format and how the media feels about the Buffaloes revamped roster.
USC was chosen as the favorite to win the 2023 Pac-12 Conference Championship in a vote of 36 media members who cover the league. The Trojans received 25 of the 36 first-place votes to earn the preseason selection.
Washington edged out Utah for second with fewer first-place votes. Oregon was the final team with a first-place vote.
The Buffaloes were chosen to finish No. 11 out of twelve teams, twenty-four points below Arizona State.
