Oregon losing is the absolute best thing the ducks could have hoped for as far
as the rankings go. Think about it. If they win, they would have beat an Oregon State team that was “short-handed” and down to their second string juco transfer qb who has never played in a D1 game in his life. That would have easily pushed them back a few spots. Instead, they nearly beat a team that crushed a top 15 team from a power 5 conference. That’s light years ahead of the Sunbelt conference to whom we know loses are generously rewarded. Smart move all around for the ducks!
