Dan Rubenstein has broken the new AP Top 25 poll from SB Nation Studios in this video, including the USC Trojans' fall to No. 13 following their 21-14 road loss to the Stanford Cardinal on Thursday. It's a long fall, but it looks like Rubenstein feels it may have been one spot too far of a fall for the Trojans.
After grabbing a 14-7 lead over Stanford early in the second quarter, on a pair of Silas Redd touchdown runs, USC failed to score during the rest of the game and fell victim to the upset. Quarterback Matt Barkley completed less than 50% of his passes, going 20-for-41 for 254 yards and two interceptions in the loss.
On Stanford's side, the win catapulted the Cardinal all the way up to a No. 9 ranking by the writers.
The Trojans move on, temporarily alone in last place in the Pac-12 South division, to host the California Bears (1-2) on Saturday.
