For the second consecutive week, the Trojans took a tumble in the polls.
This time, USC fell to No. 3 in the USA Today Coaches Poll, despite beating Syracuse 42-29.
Even so, coach Lane Kiffin doesn't seem worried about his team's ranking.
"I could care less," Kiffin said during a teleconference with reporters. "If we keep moving down and every Saturday we're winning, I'll be very happy."
LSU, which easily defeated Washington 41-3, took over the No. 2 spot, while Alabama remained at No. 1.
In other news around the conference, Stanford jumped from No. 21 to No. 16 after defeating Duke 50-13. UCLA and Arizona also made a move into the Top 25. Oregon remained at the No. 4 spot with its win over Fresno State.
The Bruins upset then-No. 16 Nebraska 36-30 over the weekend and Arizona stunned then-No. 18 Oklahoma State 59-38.
Do you think USC should have dropped in the polls again despite winning?
