How they voted: AP Poll

How they voted: AP Poll

USC dropped from #15 to #17 in the AP Poll after a season opening win over UNLV.

While the Trojans beat the visiting Mountain West school 43-21, they had their fair of problems securing the victory.

The offense seemed to have trouble until the fourth quarter. That’s when a 24-7 run blew open the score and gave USC the win. But the Trojans led UNLV 19-14 at the end of the third with 12 of those 19 points coming on field goals. USC also had trouble on defense. UNLV rushed for over 300 yards in the game.

The final result? USC moves slightly backwards in its quest to climb the rankings ladder. Right now, only 5 of 61 AP voters consider USC a top 10 team. While every voter ranks USC in the top 25, 8 of them see the Trojans outside of the top 20.

Here’s a list of rankings from every AP voter. This list can be found at collegefootball.ap.org. It’s worth noting the one USC beat writer who votes, Joey Kaufman of the Southern California News Group, has the Trojans at #20.
