Oregon football jumps to 19 in rankings following loss to Stanford



The now No. 19 Oregon football (3-1) team jumped one spot in the Associated Press Top-25 Poll following the 38-31 overtime loss to No. 7 Stanford.

Oregon led by as many as 17 at one point, but the Cardinal were able to battle back and tie the game as regulation ended.

The Ducks did not trail the Cardinal until Colby Parkinson’s 23-yard touchdown catch in overtime.

Oregon will need to bounce back quickly. The Ducks will play their first road game of the season against No. 24 Cal (3-0).

Washington is the third team in the Pac-12 ranked, dropping one spot to 11. Other Pac-12 teams with votes were Colorado (83), Utah (9) and Arizona State (4).
