The conference announced the results Wednesday before its preseason media availabilities in Hollywood.

USC got 28 of 52 overall first-place votes, beating out the Huskies' 22. The Trojans won their final nine games last season behind returning quarterback Sam Darnold, culminating in a thrilling Rose Bowl victory over Penn State.

Washington went 12-2 and won the conference title game over Colorado last season. The Huskies lost to Alabama in the College Football Playoff semifinal.

The Buffaloes are picked to finish fourth in the Pac-12 S

NEW YORK (AP) — Chipotle says it received a follow-up subpoena requesting information tied to illnesses associated with a restaurant in Virginia this month.

The chain says Wednesday it received the subpoena July 19 for information tied to what health officials believe was a norovirus outbreak at the Sterling, Virginia, location. Chipotle notes it received a subpoena last year in connection with a criminal investigation by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Central District of California and the Food and Drug Administration.

That subpoena required documents tied to a California restaurant where a norovirus outbreak occurred in 2015. It came after Chipotle was hit with an E. coli outbreak and a separate norovirus outbreak lat

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Harrison Bader started the day in Memphis and ended it sliding across home plate with the game-winning run for the St. Louis Cardinals in his major league debut.

"I don't know if I'd say I dreamed about that moment, because that would be a little weird, but definitely just saw the perfect opportunity," Bader said after doubling to lead off the ninth inning and scoring on Jedd Gyorko's short sacrifice fly in a 3-2 win over the Colorado Rockies on Tuesday night.

"It was awesome," Bader said. "It was a dream come true, for sure."

Bader got the news of the surprise call-up on Tuesday morning when the Cardinals decided to place Dexter Fowler on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left wrist.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The Cardinals and Colorado Rockies tried to speed up the pace of play on Tuesday night and it was hardly noticed.

Major League Baseball experimented with having the timing clock between half innings set at 1 minute, 45 seconds. Since 2016, the clock has been set at 2:05 for locally televised games and 2:25 for nationally televised games, down 20 seconds for each from 2015.

"We all knew early in the day," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said after the team beat the Rockies 3-2. "Lance (Lynn) was excited about it. He asked, 'Why isn't it always like this?' He feels like he has to wait around for commercials to be finished. To be honest I didn't even notice. I notice the real long breaks because we're just sitt

CHICAGO (AP) — Research on 202 former football players found evidence of a brain disease linked to repeated head blows in nearly all of them, from athletes in the National Football League, college and even high school.

It's the largest update on chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, a debilitating brain disease that can cause a range of symptoms including memory loss.

The report doesn't confirm that the condition is common in all football players; it reflects high occurrence in samples at a Boston brain bank that studies CTE. Many donors or their families contributed because of the players' repeated concussions and troubling symptoms before they died.

"There are many questions that remain unanswered," said lead au

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Matt Paradis can't recall ever feeling this good heading into training camp.

The Denver Broncos' star center who missed the offseason program following double hip surgery said Tuesday he's ready to return to the football field although "I think they're going to ease me back in."

"My hips are feeling great," Paradis told The Associated Press on Tuesday. "It's been a long process but we jumped on it right after last season, got the surgeries done so that I'd be good to go by now. And here we are going into fall camp tomorrow and I'm feeling pretty great.

"I mean, there's some soreness. But that just goes with the territory, and I'm ready to go for fall camp.

(AP) — Prosecutors say "compromising photographs" were a point of contention between a Colorado father and the teenage son he is accused of killing.

La Plata County District Attorney Christian Champagne mentioned the photos of the father at a news conference without elaborating Tuesday, but he declined to discuss a motive in the 2012 death of 13-year-old Dylan Redwine.

The boy's remains were found about 10 miles from his father's southwestern Colorado home in 2013.

Dylan's father, Mark Redwine, was arrested in Washington state Saturday and is awaiting an extradition hearing. Prosecutors plan to charge him with second-degree murder and child abuse resulting in death.

DENVER (AP) — Chipotle says it believes an employee was working while sick at a Virginia location where dozens of customers reported becoming ill earlier this month with what health officials think was norovirus.

After the company reported improved sales for the second quarter Tuesday, CEO Steve Ells said that a company investigation into the illnesses found that its leadership at the store didn't adhere to its protocols.

An audit presented to lawmakers warned that changes to the Affordable Care Act could cut revenues for the exchange known as Connect for Health Colorado , which launched in 2013 and currently enrolls 178,000 Coloradans.

State insurance marketplaces were authorized and, initially, federally funded, under President Barack Obama's health care law. Federal grants to Colorado totaled nearly $190 million before they ended in June 2016.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Gary Kubiak's separation from the NFL is over.

Kubiak is returning to the Denver Broncos in a scouting capacity seven months after stepping down as their head coach over health concerns .

Kubiak will serve as a senior personnel adviser, scouting college and pro players. He'll be based out of his Houston home and make periodic trips to Broncos headquarters for personnel meetings, general manager John Elway said Tuesday.

"With as much experience as he has evaluating players, Gary's going to be a tremendous resource for our personnel department," Elway said. "He'll primarily help on the college side and assist us in free agency as well.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Randal Grichuk is riding his longest home run streak in the majors.

Grichuk hit a two-run homer, Mike Leake pitched seven scoreless innings and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Colorado Rockies 8-2 on Monday night.

Leake's six-strikeout performance was his best since giving up one run over eight innings against Washington on June 30. It was the first win for Leake (7-8) against the Rockies since Aug. 10, 2011.

"That was the goal, attack their weaknesses," Leake said. "Fortunately, today I was able to consistently hit my spots."

Kevin Siegrist pitched the Cardinals out of a two-on, one-out jam in the eighth by getting Gerardo Parra to strike out and Mark Reynolds to fly out. Tyler Lyons struck ou
