Washington (+13) and Oregon (+13) finished in a tie for first-place, but there was not a playoff between the two teams, so the Huskies and Ducks were named co-champions of the event.

Gonzaga (+39), Washington State (+41), UC Davis (+41), and Minnesota (+43) finished just ahead of Utah, while BYU (+47), Boise State (+48), Sacramento State (+51) and Seattle (+89) followed.
