The AP Top 25 has been released after the conclusion of a raucous Week 3 of college football. While the USC Trojans have tumbled out of the rankings, three other Pac-12 teams solidified a spot.

After the 37-14 loss to the Texas Longhorns in their second road game of the season, USC will look to climb back into contention after falling out of the AP Top 25.

With the top four spots sits, Alabama, Georgia, Clemson, and Ohio State, who are all undefeated on the season. There are two Pac-12 teams sitting in the top 10, with the Stanford Cardinal moving up from the ninth spot to No. 7 and the Washington Huskies staying put at No. 10.

A few previous unranked team have cracked into the Top 25, Texas A&M taking USC’s spot at No. 22, Boston College at No. 23, and BYU who upset the former No. 6 Wisconsin, to rise and claim the last spot on the list.

While other teams rose, the Trojans fell and they fell hard, receiving not a single vote after their performance in Austin.

Fellow Pac-12 school Oregon is the last west coast team ranked, sitting at No. 22. The Trojans will have a tough uphill battle ahead of them, for they have a short week to get back to form as they face Washington State on Friday night in the Coliseum.
