A lot of questions still have to be answered about the viability of the 2020 college football season, but for now things are proceeding like there will be one, so on Thursday the preseason Coaches Poll was released.

The Pac-12 has three teams ranked in the Top 25, with Oregon leading the way at No. 9. USC checks in at No. 17 and Utah is just a few spots below them at No. 20.

Meanwhile, five other Pac-12 teams received votes, with Arizona State and Washington falling just outside the Top 25. Washington State, Cal and Stanford each received a modest number of votes.
