Poor Oregon Ducks. All they do is win in the Pac-12. All they did this week was drop.
Oregon fell from seventh to eighth in the latest BCS standings report, despite a rather comfortable win over the Washington St. Cougars. Meanwhile, both the Oklahoma Sooners (conquerors of Kansas State) and Arkansas Razorbacks (narrow victors in Vanderbilt) jumped ahead of Oregon while the Clemson Tigers dropped behind after their upset.
It has to be a puzzling result for Oregon, but you have to guess that the computers have yet to be impressed with what the Ducks have done on the football field based on the strength of the opponents they faced, with only a lone victory over the Arizona St. Sun Devils being remotely impressive.
Well, here comes the killer slate for Oregon: at Washington, at Stanford, home to USC. Win all three, and I doubt they'll have to worry about those low computer rankings anymore.
