Oregon Ducks move up to No. 2 in AP poll

Fresh off its marquee win against Michigan State, Oregon is the new No. 2 team in the AP poll. The Ducks' decisive 46-27 win against the Spartans on Saturday was enough to vault the team over previous No. 2 Alabama, which beat Florida Atlantic 41-0 this week.

Oregon received 16 of the 60 first-place votes and remains behind No. 1 Florida State, which received 38 first-place votes.

USC's 13-10 win against Stanford in coach Steve Sarkisian's first big test moved the Trojans up five spots to No. 9 -- vaulting over previous No. 11 UCLA, which fell to No. 12 overall.

Stanford dropped two spots to No. 15 and is the second-highest-ranked team with a loss behind only No. 13 Michigan State.

Arizona State is up a spot to No. 16 after its 58-23 win against New Mexico.
