Another week, another No. 1 ranking for the Oregon Ducks. The Ducks topped the AP Top 25 for the sixth straight week this week, staying at the top while on a bye. Oregon was followed by Auburn, Boise State, TCU and Wisconsin, who jumped the LSU Tigers in the rankings this week. The Badgers held a slim lead for the No. 5 spot, only two points up on LSU.
Nebraska fell the farthest this week with a loss to Texas A&M. In a field goal fest, the Huskers came up short, losing to TAMU, 9-6. With the loss, Nebraska fell seven spots to No. 16. Oklahoma State jumped into the top 10 with a dominating 48-14 win over Kansas.
Oregon was joined by two other Pac-10 teams this week after USC fell out of the rankings with a loss to the Oregon State Beavers yesterday. Stanford stayed at No. 7 in the AP Poll with an easy win over Cal in the Big Game, 48-14. Arizona, also on a bye, moved up three spots to No. 20 this week. Oregon State also received one vote in the rankings.
