My 2013 ballot, submitted to the Pac-12 Football Media Poll, to be released next week:

North Division

1. Stanford

2. Oregon

3. Washington

4. Oregon State

5. California

6. Washington State

South Division

1. Arizona State

2. USC

3. UCLA

4. Utah

5. Arizona

Colorado

Explanations: The North was much easier to pick, with the deciding factor being that Stanford hosts Oregon in November. The South was a tough choice between the top three teams. And once again, I'm probably overestimating USC and underestimating UCLA, the two-time defending division champion.
