College Football Rankings: USC On Verge Of Joining Top 25

The USC Trojans face a tough test this week when they face the Arizona Wildcats in Tucson on Saturday night. They will likely need a win against Arizona, ranked 18th in the latest BCS standings, to rejoin the top 25. In the current edition of the SB Nation College Football BlogPoll, the Trojans are ranked 26th, barely missing the top 25. That is the same rank for USC in the Associated Press poll as well.

The Pac-10 has three teams in the top 25 of the BlogPoll. The Oregon Ducks grabbed 53 of 84 first place votes to nab the top spot, the same spot they occupy in the AP poll, coaches poll, and BCS standings. The Stanford Cardinal, whose only loss this season is to Oregon, are ranked sixth in the BlogPoll, while the Arizona Wildcats fell to 18th after their loss on Saturday to Stanford.

Here is the full SB Nation College Football BlogPoll Top 25:

  1. Oregon
  2. Auburn
  3. TCU
  4. Boise St
  5. LSU
