In a vote by the thirty-three member media panel on the first day of the Pac-12 Media Days, Oregon State has been selected to finish last (6th) in the North Division, garnering a last-place vote from every member of the media group. The Beavers received the lowest number of votes in the whole conference, finishing 30 points behind Colorado, who was picked to finish last in the South Division.

The media chose Stanford as the favorite to win the Pac-12 title for the first time in the history of the conference, receiving 24 first-place votes. UCLA was selected to finish second in the whole Pac-12 with 19 first-place votes, followed by USC (12), Washington (8) and Utah (2). The Bruins were also picked to win the Pac-12 South Division. The full projected conference standings are below:

1. Stanford (24-186)
