USC is ranked No. 5 in the latest AP Top 25 poll, released Sunday.

The Trojans are 3-0 and coming off a record-setting 56-10 win over Stanford on Saturday night. They moved up one spot in the latest media poll.

USC has cleared 50 in all three games to open the season — the first time that has been done in a season in school history. The Trojans’ 178 points scored through three games matches the 2005 USC team for the second-most in any three-game stretch in school history.

Quarterback Caleb Williams has opened his Heisman Trophy defense by looking like one of the best quarterbacks on the planet, regardless of level. Williams threw for 281 yards and three touchdowns in just two quarters of work against Stanford. He has an FBS-leading 12 touchdown passes through three games and has yet to throw an interception.

USC has also seen its defense improve on the scoreboard each week since the season began. The Trojans gave up 28 points to San Jose State in the Week 0 opener. A week later, they allowed 14 to Nevada. The 10 points scored by Stanford on Saturday were the fewest the Cardinal have had in a game against USC since 2014.

USC is one of eight Pac-12 schools ranked in the latest AP Top 25. The Trojans are joined in the poll by No. 8 Washington, No. 12 Utah, No. 13 Oregon, No. 16 Oregon State, No. 18 Colorado, No. 23 Washington State, and No. 24 UCLA.
