Quick Hits: Ducks gear up for Cal following first loss of the season, FBI investigation sends shock-waves through NCAA

— Following its 37-35 loss to Arizona State last Saturday, Oregon football fell out of the Top 25 in the latest AP Poll. Oregon was ranked No. 24 after jumping out to a 3-0 start to the season.

— Oregon looks to bounce back on Saturday night versus Cal. The Ducks have responded well following the first loss of the Willie Taggart era, with the offense looking to fix penalties and third down conversions.

— Safety Khalil Oliver has left the Oregon football team. The junior started the season opener against Southern Utah but hasn’t appeared since. He intends to become a graduate transfer, in which he’d be able to play for two more seasons.

— Oregon Soccer jumped out to a 6-2 start in non-conference play, but lost its Pac-12 opener to Arizona, 3-1. The Ducks travel to Los Angeles to play UCLA on Thursday and USC on Sunday.

— 12-ranked Oregon volleyball heads to the mountains this weekend to face No. 15 Utah and unranked Colorado. 

— A three-year investigation by the FBI into bribes and corruption in NCAA basketball resulted in 10 people being arrested on Tuesday. Assistant coaches from six schools — including Arizona and USC — were implicated. Many expect the investigation to reveal more schools that are involved.
