Following the Trojans' 38-20 Saturday night debacle in the Rose Bowl against UCLA, USC fell back out of the AP Top 25 Poll after just one week in the rankings. After there being six Pac-12 teams ranked last week, there are only four this week as the Trojans and the Utah Utes both dropped out after bad losses.

Oregon tops the list of Pac-12 teams once again, sitting in third behind Florida State and Alabama still. UCLA gained two spot thanks in part to the Ole Miss shutout loss and is now a top 10 team at No. 9. The Arizona schools are both in the top 15 as well. Arizona State struggled with Washington State some and stayed at No. 13 while rival Arizona jumped the Sun Devils, gaining three spots up to No. 12.

UCLA will get an opportunity to lock up the Pac-12 South title with a victory over a struggling Stanford squad while a loss and an Arizona State win over Arizona would give it to the Sun Devils.
