AP Poll Top 25 Video Breakdown: USC Falls To No. 13

Dan Rubenstein has broken the new AP Top 25 poll from SB Nation Studios in this video, including the USC Trojans' fall to No. 13 following their 21-14 road loss to the Stanford Cardinal on Thursday. It's a long fall, but it looks like Rubenstein feels it may have been one spot too far of a fall for the Trojans.

After grabbing a 14-7 lead over Stanford early in the second quarter, on a pair of Silas Redd touchdown runs, USC failed to score during the rest of the game and fell victim to the upset. Quarterback Matt Barkley completed less than 50% of his passes, going 20-for-41 for 254 yards and two interceptions in the loss.

On Stanford's side, the win catapulted the Cardinal all the way up to a No. 9 ranking by the writers.

The Trojans move on, temporarily alone in last place in the Pac-12 South division, to host the California Bears (1-2) on Saturday.
