After the Trojans' 28-26 victory over Arizona on Saturday, USC saw its odds to win the national championship gain traction this week. After having 100/1 odds to win the title last week, USC's odds are up to 75/1. The loss pushed Arizona from a 50/1 contender to 100/1.

Following the Ducks throttling of the Bruins, Oregon rose from 22/1 to 14/1 while UCLA fell from 25/1 to 100/1. Stanford was previously off the board but comes back at 100/1. USC's cross-country rival, Notre Dame Fighting Irish, sits at 10/1 after being 12/1 last week.

The Trojans also saw their odds rise in the Heisman race thanks to a dynamite game by Buck Allen. After rushing for a career-high 205 yards and three touchdowns, Allen's Heisman Trophy odds doubled, going from 100/1 to 50/1. Allen is one of 15 players currently on the Bovada (, Twitter: @BovadaLV) board

Pac-12 quarterbacks Marcus Mariota and Brett Hundley saw their odds follow the fate of their team. Mariota saw his odds rise from 3/1 to 2/1, putting him behind only Mississippi State's Dak Prescott (9/4). With a good game against Oregon, Hundley could have shot up the odds chart. Instad, he went from 33/1 to off the board completely.

Here are the latest odds courtesy of Bovada (second number is current line, first number is last week's line):
