Dana Altman’s Ducks moved up five spots, from 24th to 19th, in this week’s AP Top 25 after a Civil War win last Thursday.

Oregon is ranked one spot behind Arizona, despite the team’s identical records and Oregon’s win over Arizona. UCLA is also ranked behind Arizona, at No. 23, despite a pair of wins over the Wildcats.

With two games left in the regular season, Oregon is tied with UCLA for the Pac-12 lead. Oregon would win the Pac-12 regular season title with road wins over Utah and Colorado this week.
