Pac-12 teams are ready to take to the floor as the 2012 campaign is set to begin. All teams open the new season this weekend with defending NCAA Champion UCLA debuting as the No. 1 team in the nation ... OREGON is taking on the new season head on, traveling to Columbus, Ohio, to take on a pair of top-25 foes. Last year, the Ducks picked up an upset-victory early in the non-conference slate and are looking to do the same in 2012 ... No. 6 STANFORD also takes on a tough road challenge, taking on Hawai'i on the Rainbow Wahine's court ... Six Pac-12 teams enter the 2012 campaign ranked in the AVCA Preseason Poll. In addition to the top-ranked Bruins, USC was tabbed No. 5, followed by the Cardinal (6), WASHINGTON (14), CALIFORNIA (17) and the Ducks (20) ... The Pac-12 is coming off one of its most successful seasons, sending seven teams to the NCAA Tournament with two teams advancing to the national semifinals for the second-straight year ... The Conference welcomes back a wealth of talent in 2011, with five AVCA All-Americans making a return. The league also welcomes an impressive recruiting class, including 18 Volleyball Magazine Fab 50 recruits. Eight of the recruiting classes were ranked in the top 25 in the country.
