Ducks No. 12 In Preseason Coaches Poll

Aug 8, 2022

EUGENE, Ore. — The Oregon football team came in at No. 12 in the USA Today Sports AFCA preseason coaches poll that was unveiled on Monday morning.
 
The Ducks will open the season at No. 12 for the second year in a row, and in the top 15 for the fourth straight season. Oregon is the second-highest ranked team in the Pac-12, trailing only No. 8 Utah. USC gives the conference three top-25 teams at No. 15.
 
Oregon will kick off its first season under new head coach Dan Lanning in Atlanta on Sept. 3 against Georgia, the defending national champions and No. 3 ranked team in the preseason poll. Lanning helped lead the Bulldogs to the national title last season in his third year as defensive coordinator before taking over Oregon's head coaching job.
 
The Ducks will face Eastern Washington (FCS) in their home opener at Autzen Stadium on Sept. 10.
