Ducks Up a Spot in AP Poll

The Oregon Ducks moved up a spot in the latest Associated Press poll to the No. 2. The poll was released on Tuesday morning with Alabama holding down the top spot, followed by Oregon, Ohio State, Clemson, Stanford, South Carolina, Texas A&M, Louisville, LSU and Florida State rounding out the Top-10.

Other Pac-12 teams in the top-25 are UCLA (18), Washington (20) while USC slipped to No. 25 due to the less than impressive win over Hawaii (30-13) last Thursday night.

Oregon State not only was dropped from the Top-25 as a result of its 49-46 loss to FCS powerhouse Eastern Washington University, the Beavers also received no "others receiving" votes.

Oregon received 1,355 votes in the poll compared to Alabama's 1497 while Ohio State tallied 1330.

Pac-12 teams receiving votes were Arizona State (48) and Arizona (6).

Virginia, the team Oregon will face next week in Charlottesville, received two votes.
