The newest BCS rankings were released on Sunday night. The USC Trojans were ranked No. 9, one spot higher than they were last week. USC blew out the Colorado Buffaloes this weekend and now hold a half-game lead in the Pac-12 South standings.

The Alabama Crimson Tide remained the No. 1 team in the BCS. Florida held onto second place. The Kansas St. Wildcats hurdled the Oregon Ducks and are now third. The Ducks are in fourth. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish held onto the fifth spot.

The LSU Tigers are No. 6. The Oregon St. Beavers moved up to seventh. The Oklahoma Sooners are No. 8, USC is No. 9 and the Georgia Bulldogs round out the top 10 despite having faced a relatively weak schedule.

The only other Pac-12 team to make this week's BCS rankings were the Stanford Cardinal, who moved up to 17th. A complete look at this week's BCS standings can be found here, courtesy of SB Nation.
