NCAA Football Rankings 2012: Idle USC Trojans fall, UCLA Bruins appear in BlogPoll

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The USC Trojans fell a spot after a bye week, while the UCLA Bruins rose to No. 24 in the updated SB Nation BlogPoll

The UCLA Bruins rose four spots to No. 24 in the Week 6 SB Nation BlogPoll, while the USC Trojans fell a spot to No. 14 after a bye week.

Jim Mora's UCLA squad defeated the Colorado Buffaloes 42-14 last weekend to rebound from the prior week's loss to the Oregon State Beavers. Those very Beavers jumped the Trojans with a road victory at Arizona this weekend. OSU showed the most movement in this week's poll, jumping up six spots.

The top seven teams overall didn't budge from last week.

In the Pac-12, Oregon remains at No. 2 behind the Alabama Crimson Tide. The Ducks earned three first-place votes. The Stanford Cardinal had the biggest fall in the BlogPoll after Thursday's loss to the Washington Huskies. David Shaw's team fell 10 spots to No. 18 overall.
