The Pac-12 had quite a rough Week 3. The USC Trojans, who are ranked 4th in country and, more importantly, have been No. 1 in these power rankings each week, nearly lost to the Texas Longhorns, who lost to Maryland earlier this year and Kansas last year. And that was just one of ten games. Anyway, it was a bad week for the Pac-12 and our power rankings have changed to reflect how every team has looked thus far.

Also of note, these power rankings will be explained with one (1) play that summarizes each team.
