Okay... so it wasn't the University of Southern California Trojans - but it felt good to say it anyway.
But the Trojans did manage to bounce back against the only team in their conference with a losing record with the return of freshman quarterback Matt Barkley.
It seemed like a cakewalk for the Trojans as they made easy work of Washington St. to settle for a split in the state.
1 Florida - Damn... that's why I like college football - you can actually hit the quarterback.
Sure, Florida beat Kentucky - but at what cost?
2 Texas - An easy win against a 1-3 UTEP team. Who says the Trojans don't play anybody?
3 Alabama - Okay, this game can always go either way regardless of rankings. The Tide won a game they should have won.
4 Mississippi - Lost to the other USC (South Carolina) ensuring that my USC (Southern California) will move up in the polls.
5 Penn State - C'mon Joe Pa, hang 'em up. Iowa looked like a contender in the Big-10 with this quality win.
-Perennial power Georgia struggled against perennial Pac-10 also ran Arizona St. with a narrow victory at home.
- Boise St. is still in the mix after a win against Bowling Green. Bowling Green? That's like beating Slippery Rock State.
- The Utes beat a Louisville team that seems to have seen it's best years pass.
