The Oregon Ducks are slowly but surely creeping their way up the college football rankings, getting ever so close to their Pac-12 rival Stanford in the AP Poll this week.
The Ducks used a 43-28 win over Washington State to gain that extra step on the ladder, now sitting right outside the top 5 in both in AP and USA Today/Coaches Polls. Stanford's triple overtime thriller over USC was enough to keep them in the No. 4 spot, preceded by Oklahoma State (No. 3), Alabama (No. 2), and LSU (No. 1), all whom retained their spots from last week.
Clemson, Michigan State, and Kansas State all fell out of the top 10 with losses, while Georgia Tech and Auburn made their way up the list after being unranked last week, moving up to No. 22 and No. 25 respectfully.
As for the rest of the Pac-12, Arizona State jumped up three spots to No. 20 in the polls, while USC only dropped one spot to No. 21 after almost taking out the Cardinal at the Coliseum this Saturday. Washington just missed the top 25, receiving 52 votes.
