Ducks Jump To No. 4 In AP, Coaches Polls
EUGENE, Ore. — On the strength of Saturday's historic win at Ohio State, the Oregon football team moved up to No. 4 in both the Associated Press and USA Today AFCA Coaches polls on Sunday morning.
The Ducks were among the biggest risers in the AP poll, jumping up eight spots from No. 12. Oregon moved up seven spots in the coaches poll from No. 11.
It is the first top-five ranking in both polls for Oregon since finishing the 2019 season as the consensus No. 5 team in the country. No. 4 is UO's highest AP regular-season ranking since coming in at No. 3 in December 2014, and the Ducks are in the top five of the coaches poll in the regular season for the first time since September 2015.
UO is the highest ranked Pac-12 team in the AP poll, and one of two in the top 15 along with No. 13 UCLA. Arizona State is also in the top 25 at No. 19.
Oregon's win over then-No. 3 Ohio State on Saturday was the program's…
» First-ever win over Ohio State.
» Sixth-ever victory over a top-three team, and first since 2011.
» First road win over a top-five team since beating Stanford in 2011.
» Ninth all-time win over a top-five opponent.
The Ducks will return to Autzen Stadium this week to host Stony Brook on Saturday (4:30 p.m., Pac-12 Network) before opening Pac-12 play at home against Arizona on Sept. 25.
