Final 2012 poll: NR-AP; NR-Coaches

Coach Lane Kiffin is on hot seat after going from BCS title favorite to finishing unranked. Soph QBs Max Wittek and Cody Kessler, all-American WR Marqise Lee, and RB Silas Redd are offensive playmakers. DE Morgan Breslin, LB Hayes Pullard and FS Dion Bailey lead talented defense. Trojans avoid Oregon unless it's Pac-12 title game. |(Credit: AP)
