Four From Stanford, Two From Cal Make CBSsports.com Preseason All-Pac-12 Team

Four Stanford and two Cal football players were named to the CBSsports.com Preseason All-Pac-12 list. The list was dominated by USC, who had eight players selected.

If the list is indicative of anything, it looks like overthrowing the USC machine will take quite a bit of effort and good play.

Stanford was equally represented on offense and defense. Running back Stepfan Taylor and tight end Levine Toilolo made the offensive cut, while star linebacker pair Chase Thomas and Shayne Skov made the defensive end.

Cal had offensive tackle Matt Summers-Gavin and defensive tackle Aaron Tipoti made the list.

CBSsports.com had especially nice things to say about Toilolo.

No offense features the tight end as a key contributor quite like the Cardinal's does and having the 6-foot-8, 265-pound Toilolo run and catch like he does makes him a mismatch against any defense.

Four of the 12 teams in the conference were not represented by any players - Arizona, Arizona State, UCLA and Washington.
