... 6) Remember that gap between Oregon and the previous top 2 (Boise and TCU)? Yeah, so much for that. Oregon's extremely impressive 21-point win at USC made short work of it, passing Boise and basically moving into a tie with TCU. The Ducks now own two extremely impressive 21-point wins, against Stanford and USC, plus a number of other solid showings as well. Other teams will have a chance to move their own ratings up, but this Duck team is playing at a very good level. If they can continue their dominant pace in a difficult final three-game stretch (obviously the Washington game isn't as big of a hurdle), their rating would rise even further.
