After thrashing Ohio State last night, there should be no doubt USC deserves the week three top ranking. With such a clear-cut number one, however, it's even harder to determine the rest of this week's top 10. No team can boast a win over that kind of quality opponent, especially in such impressive fashion. Missouri has put up some impressive numbers so far, but the Tiger defense was torched in the team's toughest game by an Illinois team that has looked decidedly mediocre. East Carolina needed a late comeback to beat Tulane this week. Just tough to tell who's good and who's not at this point.
