They say that good things come in threes and if, as ABC’s Schoolhouse Rock taught many of us, three is, indeed, a magic number, then UCLA could be in for a magical season. Josh Rosen wears number three and is in his third season as a Bruin. And, this morning, the Pac-12 Pre-season Media Poll was released and UCLA was picked to come in third place in the Pac-12 South.
USC was picked to win the South while Utah was second. Colorado was fourth. Arizona State finished fifth and Arizona was sixth.
Washington was picked to win the North with Stanford second and Washington State third. Oregon was picked to come in fourth while Oregon State has been picked fifth and UC Berkeley was sixth.
In addition to winning the South, Southern Cal was also picked to win the Pac-12 Football Championship Game with a total of 28 votes while Washington received 22 votes and Oregon and Utah received one vote each.
The 2017 Pac-12 Football Championship Game will take place Friday, December 1 and will be telecast to a nation audience on ESPN (game time TBD). The Championship Game will match the winner of the North Division vs. the winner of the South Division at Levi’s® Stadium in Santa Clara.
