2010 BCS Standings Week 2 Prediction: No. 1 Oregon Takes Over at the Top
2010 BCS Standings Previous Ranking: No. 2
Week 8 Result: Win, 60-13 vs. UCLA
Why They Are Here: If style points mattered, Oregon would be No. 1 by a mile at the moment.
The Ducks trounced UCLA Thursday night at should be able to fend off Auburn to take a spot at the top in the BCS Standings.
The gaudy offensive statistics get most of the attention, but Oregon's defense has been better than advertised so far this season.
Staying Power: Could Oregon be the next No. 1 to fall? Don't count on it.
The Ducks' favorable schedule sets up well down the stretch, especially with Arizona coming to Eugene.
The Civil War with Oregon State should be competitive, but the Beavers don't have nearly the firepower needed to pull what would be a colossal upset.
Even if Chip Kelly's team doesn't stay on top, winning out should easily be enough to secure a spot in the National Championship game.
Without the potential to suffer a loss in a conference championship game, Oregon's place in the national title race should stay rosy for the remainder of the season.
