NEW YORK (AP) – For the first time, University of Oregon is No. 1 in The Associated Press college football poll.
The Ducks climbed one place to the top spot during an off week after the previous No. 1, Ohio State, lost 31 to 18 at Wisconsin on Saturday night. With that loss Ohio State dropped 10 spots to 11th.
Boise State then moved up one place to No. 2. Oklahoma also jumped up: skipping three spots to No. 3, passing No. 4 TCU. Auburn moved up two spots to fifth position.
University of Oregon becomes the 43rd team to hold the No. 1 ranking in the AP media poll, which dates to 1936. Ohio State's loss comes one week after then-No. 1 Alabama was beaten by South Carolina.
The Oregon Ducks must now try to avoid becoming the third-straight No. 1 team to lose when it plays at home against UCLA this coming Thursday.
