College Football Rankings, Week 4: USC Falls To No. 16, UCLA Checks In At No. 18

In the newest SB Nation College Football BlogPoll Top 25, the USC Trojans fell 13 spots to No. 16, while the UCLA Bruins moved up two spots to No. 18.

The Trojans were upset by the Stanford Cardinal on Saturday. The Bruins dismantled the Houston Cougars, 37-6.

Ninety bloggers from across the country turned in ballots to give more of a fan's perspective of who the top teams in the country are. Not hindered by the need to obsess over one particular team or game, bloggers are professional channel changers and have a more complete idea of where teams stand in the country.

The top five teams in the BlogPoll are the Alabama Crimson Tide, LSU Tigers, Oregon Ducks, Georgia Bulldogs and Florida St. Seminoles. The Crimson Tide received 89 of the 90 first place votes. No. 8 Stanford grabbed the final one.
