38 Days Until Wildcat Football Kicks Off for 2011

Posted By on Wed, Jul 27, 2011 at 9:00 AM

While the new structure of the Pac-12 might make it slightly easier for the University of Arizona to make it to its first Rose Bowl, with the Wildcats only needing to be better than the other five teams (actually...USC is still ineligible for postseason play, so they could still finish behind the Trojans even) of the South division to make it to the Pac-12 Championship Game. Of course, they'd need to still win that game, but let's take things one step at a time.

As it stands, however, media members aren't too optimistic of their chances so far, with only one reporter picking them yesterday to finish first in the division:


1. USC (24 first-place votes), 230 points*
2. ASU (13), 207
3. Utah (4), 170
4. Arizona (1), 140
5. UCLA, 89
6. Colorado, 46

In other news, my Oregon State Beavers were picked fourth in the North division, set to be overshadowed by national championship runner-ups Oregon and the Andrew Luck-led Stanford Cardinal. So, at least I can likely share my misery with my fellow Tucsonans.
