The USC Trojans' stint in the Amway Coaches Poll Top 25 was a very short one. After the Trojans lost to UCLA on Saturday, USC dropped right back out of the top 25 after only one week. Utah also fell out of the top 25, so there are now only four Pac-12 teams currently ranked.

The Pac-12 North champion, Oregon, remains the top ranked conference team. The Ducks beat up on Colorado, 44-10, but remained in third after Alabama trounced Western Carolina and Florida State beat Boston College.

Arizona destroyed Utah and Arizona State had some trouble against Washington State, falling behind 21-7, but came back for a 52-31 victory. Both teams moved up one spot to No. 13 and No. 14, respectively. After UCLA's victory in the Rose Bowl, the Bruins moved up two spots to No. 10.

USC is still ranked in the computer composite rankings, coming in at No. 24. Here is the complete Coaches Poll and a composite of the computer rankings, via Massey:
