The USC Trojans lost to Boston College, and the resultant 8 spot drop in the rankings actually looks like good news. During a week in which five SEC teams landed inside the top-10 overall rankings, the five Pac-12 schools shuffled up and down the rankings following an upset loss, a near loss from UCLA and dominant ASU and Stanford victories.

Led by No. 2 Oregon, followed by No. 12 UCLA, No. 15 ASU, No. 16 Stanford and then, of course, the No. 17 USC Trojans who fell out of the top-10 just one week after passing Stanford in the rankings the Pac-12 is well represented. Check out the rest of the top 25 featuring No. 9 Notre Dame, a slew of SEC squads and the emergent BYU program.
