Thanks to the Trojans' 38-30 Thursday night win over the Cal Golden Bears, USC moved back into the top 25 at No. 24 in the AP Top 25 Poll. They are joined by five other Pac-12 teams with Utah also re-entering the rankings at No. 20.

Oregon tops the list of Pac-12 teams once again, sitting in third behind Florida State and Alabama. UCLA, who was once knocked out of the top 25, has moved up to No. 11 while the Arizona schools are both in the top 15 as well. Despite its loss to Oregon State, Arizona State only fell to No. 13. Arizona is two spots behind at No. 15.

USC and UCLA will match up next weekend in the Rose Bowl in a de facto Pac-12 South elimination game.
