The Trojans gained two spots in the AP Poll.

Thanks to the Trojans' 56-28 win over the Colorado Buffaloes Saturday night, USC moved up to No. 20 in the AP Top 25 Poll. They are joined by five other Pac-12 teams with crosstown rival UCLA re-entering the rankings at No. 25.

Oregon tops the list of Pac-12 teams once again after their dominant win over one of its rivals, Washington. The Ducks are ranked No. 6 in the AP Poll. Arizona State jumped over its rival, Arizona Wildcats, and the two again sit back-to-back, this time at No. 14 and No. 15 in the AP Poll while the Utah Utes gained just one spot and sit right in front of the USC Trojans.

USC and Utah will match up next weekend in Salt Lake City in a big Pac-12 South game.

Stanford fell out of the top 25 after losing to Arizona State, but UCLA slipped back into the rankings to still give the Pac-12 six teams in the rankings..
