AP Poll: Oregon climbs two spots to No. 13 after win at WSU
The AP Top-25 poll is out ahead of Week Five of the college football season. The Oregon Ducks, following last week’s stunning comeback win at Washington State, climbed a couple spots, and are now No. 13 in the poll.
Oregon erased a 34-22 deficit with 6:42 remaining to storm back and stun the Cougars 44-41 in Pullman on Saturday. Bo Nix was 33/44 passing for 348 yards, 3 touchdowns and a pick-six. The Ducks racked up 628 total yards in the win.
Oregon is 3-1 overall, 1-0 in Pac-12 play and return to Autzen Stadium to host Stanford on Saturday (8 p.m., FS1).
Oregon was No. 11 in the preseason AP Poll, dropped out of the poll after the season-opening loss to Georgia, got back to No. 25 after beating Eastern Washington, then up to No. 15 after the home victory over BYU prior to the win at WSU.
The Ducks are one of four Pac-12 teams ranked this week, and the third-highest ranked team. USC (4-0, 1-0) leads the way at No. 6, up one spot after escaping with a 17-14 win at Oregon State. Utah (3-1, 1-0) is No. 12 following a road blowout win at Arizona State. And the Washington Huskies (4-0, 1-0) are No. 15 after a comfortable home win over Stanford.
There are an additional three Pac-12 teams receiving votes for the AP Poll in Week Five, led by Washington State (31), then Oregon State (16) and UCLA (3).
