LOS ANGELES (AP) — Oregon has been picked to win the Pac-12 football title in a preseason media poll for the fourth time in the past five years.

UCLA also is favored to reach the league championship game in the poll released Wednesday.

The Ducks are the media’s favorite for the third straight season, getting 37 of 39 first-place votes in the North Division balloting. Oregon also received 24 votes to win the league title game in Santa Clara, Calif., on Dec. 5.

The Bruins also received 37 of 39 first-place votes to win the South Division, along with 13 votes for a title-game victory.

Stanford, last season’s league champion, finished second behind Oregon in the North Division balloting.

Southern California is second behind UCLA in the South voting, followed by Arizona State.
