BURBANK, Calif. (AP) - Southern California has been picked to win its first Pac-12 football title since 2008 in a preseason media poll.

The conference announced the poll results Thursday before the start of its media days.

The Trojans received 21 of 45 votes for the title, edging defending champion Oregon. The Ducks got 17 votes for the top spot and were picked to win the North division, while USC is favored to win the South.

Oregon has won four of the last six league titles. Stanford, which won the crown in 2012 and 2013, was picked to finish second in the North division ahead of California.

Arizona State was picked second in the South division, just ahead of UCLA. Arizona, which won the South last year, is picked fourth.
