Pac-10 media poll: Oregon on top

By ESPN.com staff
ESPN.com

In a tie for the second-closest vote, Oregon nipped USC to top the Pac-10 media poll, but it's a sign of perceived conference parity that seven teams received No. 1 votes.

Here's the poll (No. 1 votes)
  1. Oregon (15)... 314
  2. USC (12)... 311
  3. Oregon State (3)... 262
  4. Stanford (1)... 233
  5. Arizona (2)... 222
  6. Washington (1)...209
  7. California... 175
  8. UCLA (1)... 134
  9. Arizona... 81
  10. Washington State... 39

Here's my vote: 1. USC; 2. Oregon; 3. Oregon State; 4. Stanford; 5. Washington; 6. Arizona; 7. California; 8. UCLA; 9. Arizona State; 10. Washington State.

Notes: The media has picked the correct champion 26 of 49 times. ... Oregon snapped USC's hold on the top spot for the past seven seasons. ... Arizona, Oregon and Stanford each had ninth-place votes as well as first-place votes.
