Thanks to USC's 35-10 win over the Oregon State Beavers on Saturday night, the Trojans moved up two spots in the AP Poll to No. 16.
Oregon remained No. 2 in the AP Poll while being No. 4 in the Coaches Poll that was released earlier in the day. UCLA moved up from No. 11 to No. 8 after destroying Arizona State 62-27 on Thursday night. The loss sent the Sun Devils freefalling down the polls to No. 24 in the Coaches Poll and completely out of the Top 25 in the AP rankings.
However, Arizona State has the potential to jump back into the rankings thanks to an opportunity in the Coliseum this Saturday. USC and Arizona State face off at 4:30 p.m. on FOX in a big Pac-12 South clash.
The only other Pac-12 team ranked is Stanford, who defeated Washington 20-13 on Saturday. The Cardinal are ranked No. 14 and No. 13, but are viewed most positively by the Sagarin rankings that have them at No. 10. UCLA also is rated highly by Sagarin's rankings, coming in at No. 6.
