The USA Today Coaches Preseason Poll has been released.
UCLA is ranked #14 with 697 points behind #13 LSU who had 727 points and in front of #15 Ole Miss who had 668 points.
Six Pac-12 teams appear in the top-25. Oregon leads the way at #5, USC is at #10, UCLA is #14, Arizona State is #16, and Stanford and Arizona are #21 and #22, respectively.
This poll is basically meaningless except for the fact that it means we are another step closer to kickoff.
Despite that, here are the results of the Preseason Coaches Poll:
