The USC Trojans jumped to first place in the final preseason BlogPoll, and much of that has to do with the LSU Tigers' dismissal of cornerback Tyrann Mathieu. Formerly first on SB Nation's BlogPoll, the Tigers fell to third following Mathieu's departure, moving the Trojans to a NCAA-best 24.14 points per blog, just .13 points per blog more than second place Alabama.
The Arizona Wildcats managed to get a vote in the 2012 SB Nation BlogPoll, but it was due to a ballot based on low graduation rates. Of other Pac-12 schools on the list, the Oregon Ducks come in at No. 4 with the Stanford Cardinal turning in at No. 21.
