• Pac-12 softball is back and stacked with talent as the 2015 season begins this week. Measured by national championships, awards and honors, the Pac-12 has the most impressive legacy in collegiate softball and looks to 2015 for another banner season. 

• This year is highlighted by top talent and deep rosters. Pac-12 teams return nine All-Americans, including four first-team honorees, as the league now has more than 200 All-Americans all-time. Teams are also hauling in seven of the top-25 recruiting classes according to Full Count Softball, featuring the best incoming talent from the West Coast and across the nation drawn to the Pac-12’s legacy of success.

• Along with some of the top players, Pac-12 teams tout first-rate coaches, with nearly 100 combined years of Division I coaching experience and some of the winningest coaches in NCAA history. 

• Preseason accolades are already pouring in for the league, with 13 Pac-12 softball players named to the USA Softball Top 50 Watch List for Collegiate Player of the Year and five teams ranked in both the USA Today/NFCA and the ESPN.com/USA Softball preseason top-25 polls. OREGON headlines the polls at No. 2/2, followed by No. 7/6 UCLA, No. 11/13 WASHINGTON, No. 14/12 ARIZONA and No. 16/16 ARIZONA STATE.

• Once again, Pac-12 softball will receive unprecedented exposure, thanks to a record 78 games to be televised on the Pac-12 Networks, along with ESPN’s coverage of the Women’s College World Series.
