The Ducks were one of four Pac-12 schools in the top ten and come in just behind UCLA at No. 5. Other conference schools included No. 9 Stanford, No. 10 Oregon State and No. 16 Arizona State.

The defending champion Arizona Wildcats came in at No. 18. Other Pac-12 schools receiving votes included USC, Washington, California and Washington State.
