USC CheerleadersTotal Pro Sports – Southern California absolutely dominated the Ohio State Buckeyes, a top ranked team like the Buckeyes sure did not look they belong in the top 10. Dropping 8 spots to number 13 in the AP Top 25 College Football Poll

Other teams to note who made some big moves in the polls were the University of Central Florida moving up 7 spots, BYU jumping 4 spots, the Kansas Jayhawks dropped 6 spots, West Virgina moved up 4 spots and the Fresno State Bulldogs dropped 4 spots.

                                                                               

Southern California is now a no-doubt-about-it No. 1 in the AP Top 25, and there’s a new No. 2 as Georgia slipped again.

The Trojans’ resounding 35-3 victory against Ohio State on Saturday night made USC an overwhelming No. 1 in the media poll. USC received 61 first-place votes and 1,596 points on Sunday. The Trojans had 33 first-place votes last week.

Oklahoma moved past Georgia into No. 2. The Bulldogs barely got past South Carolina 14-7 on Saturday and the Sooners notched their third consecutive blowout victory, winning 55-14 at Washington.

Georgia is the first preseason No. 1 to drop that far after starting 3-0 since Oklahoma in 1985. The Sooners also fell to No. 3 after winning their first three games.
