"This is a dangerous conference."

- UCLA head football coach Karl Dorrell, after his Bruins were upset by Arizona last week.


The women's hoop predictions were revealed at the Creek last week and - surprise, surprise, - Stanford was picked to win the conference again. For the fifth time in a row, the Cardinal were predicted to win the conference title while UCLA received two first place votes and USC got one. In the men's predictions, Arizona was selected as the conference favorite.
