USC's loss to Stanford doesn't eliminate the Trojans

What might have been the biggest upset in college football history appears to be nothing more than a minor setback for the team on the wrong end of that score.
After losing to Stanford as a 41-point favorite on Saturday, USC found itself perched at No. 7 in both polls of BCS significance on Sunday. The coaches' poll and the Harris poll, each of which accounts for one-third of the formula that determines the national championship game participants, dropped the Trojans only six spots after their monumental loss. The AP poll, which is no longer part of the BCS equation, dropped them from No. 2 to No. 10.
