That is a two-spot rise for the Ducks, who debuted at No. 8 in the initial rankings a week ago. The Ducks beat Colorado on the road 49-10, and benefited from then-No. 6 Alabama losing at then-No. 10 LSU and then-No. 4 Clemson getting blown out at previously unranked Notre Dame.
LSU is the highest-ranked two-loss team in the rankings, checking in at No. 7. That is one spot ahead of the one-loss USC Trojans who rose a spot to No. 8.
Alabama slips to No. 9 and Clemson to No. 10. Previous No. 1 Tennessee fell four spots to No. 5 after losing at Georgia, the new No. 1 team in the CFP Rankings after debuting at No. 3.
The unbeaten TCU Horned Frogs are No. 4 in this week’s edition of the rankings. TCU visits No. 18 Texas on Saturday. The Longhorns are a touchdown favorite in Austin.
No. 6 Oregon returns home this Saturday to host rival Washington, who crack the CFP rankings at No. 25 following their home victory over then-No. 23 Oregon State last Friday night. Oregon is a 13-1/2 point favorite in Eugene (4 p.m., FOX).
