Unhappy USC is ranked No. 11 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings? Let’s see:
Quality wins: USC has not beaten a team currently ranked in the top 15.
Quality losses: Washington State and Notre Dame are ranked in the top 15 but USC lost by 35 points to the Irish.
Eye test: Western Michigan, Texas, Cal, Oregon State, Utah, Arizona, Colorado. Did I miss any other games where USC won but looked ugly doing it? Oregon State was a 38-7 victory but USC might have lost to a .500 team that day.
