USC was able to crack the top-10 of the BCS rankings despite their early season slip up to Stanford.

The USC Trojans clocked in at No. 10 in the initial BCS rankings after being placed at No. 11 in the most recent AP Top 25 released earlier Sunday.

USC is one of four teams in the top-10 with one tally in their loss column already but the Trojans have won three straight since their 21-14 loss to Stanford in early September. It says a lot that the computers already have USC this high though so they could continue to climb with wins against Colorado and Arizona before facing off against the Oregon Ducks on Nov. 3.

The Trojans are also one of three Pac-12 teams in the top-10 with Oregon sitting at No. 3 and Oregon State coming in No. 8 in a bit of a surprise.

The Stanford Cardinal are the only other Pac-12 team in the BCS top-25 coming in at No. 20 overall despite already registering two losses in 2012.
