The Ducks are one of four Pac-12 teams in this week’s top-25. Washington, which was No. 6 going into the first game of the season against then No. 9 Auburn, lost and consequentially fell to No. 9.
Stanford, which defeated San Diego State, moved up from No. 13 to No. 10, while USC dropped to 17th from 15th despite a win over UNLV.
