Trojans Back in Front

A convincing victory at Nebraska did the trick, but barely. By regaining some of the lost No. 1 votes in the Coaches and AP polls, USC took back the top ranking in the Week 3 unofficial BCS standings, with a razor-thin edge over No. 2 LSU.

Both USC and LSU are safely ahead of the rest of the pack, led by Florida, which took over the No. 3 spot on the strength of its computer ratings. West Virginia and Texas round up the top 5.

Oklahoma, Ohio State, California, Wisconsin and Boston College are ranked Nos. 6-10. The Eagles landed in the top 10 after placing No. 22 last week.

Next week, the unofficial standings will take on an even clearer picture as the Harris Interactive Poll, which accounts for one-third of the official standings, makes its 2007 season debut.
