EUGENE, Ore. (AP) -- Starting Saturday against UCLA and continuing next week at Stanford, Oregon faces the most challenging span of its schedule.

The outcome of the seven-day stretch is crucial for the Ducks to have a shot at the national championship. Right now the Ducks sit at No. 2 in the AP Top 25 behind Alabama.

In the initial BCS rankings, released this past Sunday, Oregon is No. 3, pushed back by undefeated Florida State, which beat No. 3 Clemson 51-14 last Saturday.

But while victories over the No. 12 Bruins and No. 8 Cardinal are considered essential for Oregon, the Ducks are focused solely on UCLA (5-1, 2-1) this Saturday afternoon at Autzen Stadium.
