This is the first time since 2012 that USC is ranked in the preseason Top 5. That year, USC was preseason No. 1 and finished the year unranked. The last three times USC was ranked in the preseason Top 10, the Trojans have disappointed, losing at least four games all three times and finishing unranked in two of them. The hype train had not been kind to the Trojans

USC came in at No. 4 in the preseason AP poll, which is one spot down from where the Trojans finished last season. The Trojans have started in the top-10 three times dating back to 2009 and failed to meet expectations each time. They finished the season unranked after starting No. 1 in 2012 and No. 8 in 2015 and at No. 22 following a No. 4 preseason ranking in 2009.
