The Oregon Ducks are once again being punished in the BCS Rankings despite obliterating their competition, staying at No. 4 in the latest rankings while the Notre Dame Fighting Irish leapfrogged them from the No. 5 spot into the No. 3 hole behind only the No. 2 Kansas St. Wildcats and No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide.
The Ducks are No. 2 in both the Coaches and the Harris polls but is No. 5 in the computer rankings which is currently keeping them out of the national championship game.
Meanwhile, the Oregon St. Beavers dropped to No. 11 after being upset by the Washington Huskies. The Beavers and Ducks still have a chance to move up in the rankings when they play each other later in the season. The Ducks will need wins over the Stanford Cardinal, USC Trojans and the Beavers to try to improve their computer ranking and move into the national championship game picture.
Oregon is 8-0 overall, 5-0 in the Pac-12 and have not scored less than 42 points in a game this season.
