Oregon holds its place in the latest College Football Playoff rankings after win over USC
Oregon continues to impress the College Football Playoff selection committee. The Ducks remained at No. 6 in this week’s updated Playoff rankings.
The CFP selection committee unveiled its updated rankings live on ESPN Tuesday night. The top five — all unbeaten teams — remained unchanged with the exception of Georgia jumping to No. 1. Oregon stayed right where it was as a result. Clarity should be coming soon at the top of the ranking, and Oregon could soon set up a rematch with Washington in the Pac-12 title game if it keeps winning.
Last week, the résumé was questioned and the status of Oregon as the highest-ranked one-loss team in the committee’s ranking was hotly debated. Oregon responded by going out and thumping USC.
A 77-yard pass to Tez Johnson and an 84-yard pass to Troy Franklin set the stage for a 36-27 win over the Trojans last Saturday at Autzen Stadium. Oregon quarterback Bo Nix arguably had his Heisman moment with a 412-yard, four-touchdown passing display in the victory.
Oregon turns its attention to Arizona State this week. A road trip to Tempe to face former offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham could be a trap game before Senior Day against Oregon State on Nov. 24, but the Ducks have done well this season to take things one game at a time.
Kickoff against the Sun Devils is set for 1 p.m. PT on FOX.
