MOST COMMENTED

[PAC-12: Women] UCLA was the preseason favorite to win the 2013 regular season Pac-12 title ahead of four-time defending conference champion Stanford.

The Bruins, the 2012 Pac-12 runner-ups, collected 117 points and seven of 11 possible first-place votes to finish ahead of Stanford 115 points and the remainder of the first-place votes. For the second straight year, California was picked to finish third.

UCLA lost 2012 Pac-12 Player of the Year Zakiya Bywaters, the No. 1 pick in the NWSL draft, to graduation. Amanda Cromwell takes over as UCLA head coach, replacing B.J. Snow, who moved to the U.S. U-17 national team, and she has lots to work with nine starters, including All-American defender Abby Dahlkemper, back from a squad that advanced to the the 2012 NCAA Tournament quarterfinals.

The Cardinal  will be led by senior goalkeeper and two-time all-conference selection Emily Oliver and an attack that will enjoy the addition of Minnesota transfer Taylor Uhl. The Bears return last season’s Pac-12 Freshmen of the Year, Ifeoma Onumonu.

Pac-12 Preseason Poll:
1. UCLA (7) 117
2. Stanford  (5)  115
3. California 99
4. Washington 77
5. Arizona State  74
6. Oregon State 70
6. Washington State 70
8. USC 65
9. Utah 37
10. Colorado 27
11. Oregon 21
12. Arizona 15
