The Colorado Buffaloes have been selected to finish seventh in the Pac-12 Conference with the release of today's media poll.

Here's the conference breakdown.

The Arizona Wildcats are picked to finish first in the 2015-16 Pac-12 Conference men's basketball race, according to a poll of media members who cover Pac-12 men's basketball.

Oregon, the runner-up finishers at the 2015 Pac-12 Tournament, were picked to finish fourth in the poll, followed by UCLA at fifth, after it advanced to the NCAA Sweet 16 in 2014-15. The Ducks and Bruins picked up one first-place vote each. Oregon State rounded out the top half of the poll, weighing in at sixth while Colorado came in at seventh.

Arizona State is tabbed at eighth, followed by Stanford at ninth and USC at 10th. Washington was picked to finish 11th, while Washington State rounds out the poll at 12th.

Media have correctly picked the Conference winner 14 times in 23 tries. Arizona has correctly been selected in nine of the previous 13 times it has been slated to capture the league crown.

The 2015-16 season gets underway for the Pac-12 with 11 games on Friday, November 13. All but one of those games will be televised live on the Pac-12 Networks as part of this year’s Full Court Friday. The Pac-12 China Game featuring Washington and Texas will take place in Shanghai, China, at 7 p.m. PT on ESPN.
