Ducks move up in AP poll with OT loss to Stanford

Oregon Ducks

The Ducks (3-1, 0-1 Pac-12) moved up from No. 20 to No. 19 in the latest Associated Press Top 25 poll, after losing to Stanford in overtime. The Cardinal remains at No. 7. 

For almost the entire game, it looked like Oregon would upset Stanford but the Ducks lost in heartbreaking fashion in overtime, 38-31.

[After losing to Stanford, here is a reason to be optimistic that the Ducks physicality is helping close the gap on the top teams in the conference.]

Also very notable, the undfeated Cal Bears snuck into the Top 25 at No. 24. Oregon plays at Berkeley on Saturday. 

The only other Pac-12 team in the AP Top 25 is No. 11 Washington.
