Arizona picked up another Top 10 preseason prediction, this time by the Sporting News.

SN placed the Wildcats at No. 8, ahead of Pac-12 rival UCLA (11).

In other preseason annual predictions, UA was placed No. 7 by Athlon Sports and 18 by Lindy's. UCLA was 10th in Lindy's and No. 12 in Athlon.

(Disclosure: While I wrote the Pac-12 items for the Sporting News, I was not part of the Top 25 rankings).
