How do we see the Pac-12 playing out this year?

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

As the 2015-16 season begins for the Arizona Wildcats, we'll be busting out a couple new things, and one of those is a staff Pac-12 Power Rankings.

Each week (or close to that), we'll be voting on how the Pac-12 teams stack up against each other.

For our preseason power rankings, six of us voted, and the only thing we all agreed on was the first-place team, and we almost all agreed on the last-place team.

Here's how the first poll turned out. Numbers in () are first-place votes:

Ranking Team
1 Arizona Wildcats (6)
2 California Golden Bears
3 Utah Utes
4 Oregon Ducks
5 UCLA Bruins
6 Oregon State Beavers
7 Colorado Buffaloes
T-8 Stanford Cardinal
T-8 Arizona State Sun Devils
10 Washington Huskies
11 USC Trojans
12 Washington State Cougars

Five of us had Cal in second, with Utah right behind.

The one team that we really couldn't agree on was Colorado. They were voted anywhere between 5th and 10th. OSU was close to that, finding themselves anywhere from No. 5 to No. 9.

Let us know what you agree or disagree with!
