The Ducks debuted at No.4 in the rankings two weeks ago, beat Washington and rose to No. 3 the following week thanks to a loss by Michigan State. It’s the highest CFP ranking for Oregon since the 2014 season, when they finished No. 2 and won the Rose Bowl/CFP Semifinal before losing to No. 4 Ohio State in the national championship game.
Utah, Oregon’s opponent this Saturday, rose a couple spots to No. 23 after being No. 25 a week prior. The Utes are a 3-point home favorite. The Utes and Ducks are the only Pac-12 teams in the CFP rankings.
The game kicks off at 4:30pm on ABC.
