Despite the Trojans' 35-10 victory over Oregon State on Saturday, USC saw its odds to win the national championship dip this week. After having 25/1 odds to win the title last week, USC's odds dropped to 33/1.

Oregon rose from 9/1 to 8/1 while UCLA jumped from 16/1 to 12/1. Stanford hung at 40/1 while Arizona State, previously at 100/1, was taken off the board.

But that wasn't the only place the Trojans saw their odds slip. USC offensive stars Cody Kessler and Buck Allen both saw their Heisman Trophy odds fall in Vegas as well. Kessler had been at 50/1 while Allen was at 66/1 last week. This week, they are both 100/1.

Pac-12 quarterbacks Marcus Mariota and Brett Hundley both saw their odds rise. Oregon's signal caller, Mariota, saw his odds increase from 2/1 to 7/4 while crosstown rival Hundley went from 33/1 to 18/1.

Here are the latest odds courtesy of Bovada (second number is current line, first number is last week's line):
