BlogPoll Ballot Week Three - How Far Should USC Drop?

Stanford takes a huge jump in my ballot this week but what happens to USC? Credit: Kyle Terada-US PRESSWIRE

Three years in a row! That's how many times Stanford had beaten USC and yet the majority of the college football world seemed absolutely shocked that it happened a fourth consecutive time on Saturday night. Don't put me in that group though. I was so confident in the Cardinal that they were one of the few picks that I got correct in our pick'em contest. The question now is, how far do I drop USC for losing when I knew it was going to happen?


My Top 10
Rank Team Comment
#1 Alabama Even with Tyler Wilson Arkansas wouldn't have had a chance.
#2 LSU Won 63-14 over Idaho. Looking more and more the part of the #2 team.
#3 Florida State Dominated conference foe Wake Forest (52-0) but huge test with Clemson is next.
#4 West Virginia I expected more than 42-12 over James Madison
#5 Oregon With the fall of Troy the Ducks become the contender from the Pac 12
#6 Oklahoma Idle
#7 Georgia Win over Missouri last weekend looks even more impressive now.
#8 South Carolina Huge beneficiaries of USC and Michigan State losing. Not gonna lie, they could be over-rated
#9 Clemson Can prove they belong in the Top 10 with a win over Florida State
#10 Stanford The Cardinal earned their ranking this weekend but big games against Arizona and Notre Dame are looming in the near future.

Clemson and Stanford also took advantage of Top 10 teams losing and earned their way in this week. Both will have to work to keep those spots though because there's a whole lot of nasty coming with their schedules over the next few weeks.
