College Football Rankings: USC Falls To No. 21 In AP Poll After Loss To Stanford

The USC Trojans may have lost to the Stanford Cardinal 56-48 on Saturday night, a triple overtime thriller, but USC didn't take a huge hit in the latest college football rankings. The Trojans remain in the top 25 in the Associated Press poll, coming in at No. 21.

Last week USC was ranked No. 20, their highest ranking of the season. They are ineligible for the USA Today coaches poll due to NCAA sanctions. Here is a look at the AP poll top 10, which includes a pair of teams from Pac-12 Conference:

  1. LSU Tigers
  2. Alabama Crimson Tide
  3. Oklahoma St. Cowboys
  4. Stanford Cardinal
  5. Boise St. Broncos
  6. Oregon Ducks
  7. Oklahoma Sooners
  8. Arkansas Razorbacks
  9. Nebraska Cornhuskers
  10. South Carolina Gamecocks

The Pac-12 has four teams in the top 25, with the Arizona St. Sun Devils checking in at No. 20. USC battles No. 6 Oregon in Eugene on November 19. Here's a look at USC in the Associated Press poll this season.
