ESPN asked Pac-12 coaches to predict the order of finish to the 2014-15 season and the coaches unanimously picked Arizona to win the conference regular-season title.

Washington finished sixth in the polling, which is a little surprising considering several media forecasts predict a dour season for the Huskies.

Jeff Goodman also asked the coaches several questions and allowed them to give anonymous responses, which proved to be interesting.

Here’s a look at ESPN’s Pac-12 preseason coaches poll.
