Heading into the first weekend of games, the Tigers dropped to No. 3 in the poll after holding the top spot in this summer's BlogPoll. Now, the Trojans have a very narrow edge on the Alabama Crimson Tide, who sit at 24.01 points per blog. That's just .13 points behind USC.
Other Pac-12 schools appearing in SB Nation's poll are the Oregon Ducks at No. 4 and Stanford Cardinal at No. 21.
