Following their stunning, last-second 32-31 loss to the Washington Huskies last night, the USC Trojans have fallen out of the Associated Press Top 25 for just the second time since 2001. USC, which was ranked 18th last week, has dropped into the "others receiving votes" section, putting them technically 28th.
USC dropped out of the AP poll for one week last season, after its loss to Arizona in its final regular-season game. It re-entered the poll with a win over Boston College in the Emerald Bowl. Before that, the last time USC was unranked was in Pete Carroll's first season, when the team finished 6-6 and lost in the Las Vegas Bowl to Utah.
The UCLA Bruins, which won 42-28 at home over the Washington State Cougars, is in the "others receiving votes" section, dropping to 33rd in the AP poll. The Bruins received eight votes this week, compared to nine last week.
UCLA again received one vote in the USA Today coaches poll, remaining ranked 37th.
