EUGENE, Ore. -- The University of Oregon Ducks jumped two spots in the latest college football AP Top 25 and now rank No. 7 - their highest position in the poll since ending the 2005 regular season at No. 6.

The Ducks (5-1, 2-1 Pac-10) also improved their standing in the USA Today (coaches) rankings, coming in at No. 6, and in the Harris Poll, where they picked up three spots to place seventh. The Harris Poll is utilized as part of the BCS standings, which are due out for the first time this season on Monday.

After hammering Washington State at home Saturday, 53-7, Oregon is the highest of the four ranked Pac-10 teams. Arizona State (7-0, 4-0), the only unbeaten team in the conference (overall record), is the lowest of the quartet at No. 12 in all three indexes.

Up next for the Ducks are the Washington Huskies (2-4, 0-3) in Seattle on Saturday, Oct. 20. Kickoff is set for 4:30 p.m. with a live telecast on FSN.
