Not many people were giving the Oregon Ducks much of a chance on Saturday night against the No. 10 Utah Utes.
Oregon was coming off of an emotional loss to the Washington Huskies, ending their College Football Playoff hopes, and on top of that, quarterback Bo Nix was questionable to play with an ankle injury that had hobbled him all week.
The result was a lot of heart and a lot of grit from the Ducks, who turned in their best defensive performance of the year and got back into the top 10 of both the AP and USA TODAY Coaches Poll.
So how does ESPN view Oregon in their power rankings after the win? Let’s take a look:
