Ducks jump two spots to No. 22 in latest AP Top 25 poll

Oregon moved up two spots to No. 22 in the Associated Press Top 25 college football poll. The Ducks beat Virginia 44-26 on Saturday night to improve to 2-0.

Other Pac-12 teams in the Top 25 are Stanford (7) and Washington (8). Four Pac-12 teams -- Utah, UCLA, Colorado and Arizona State -- are in the others receiving votes group.

Oklahoma State dropped out of the Associated college football poll after a controversial loss, and Georgia and Clemson fell after close calls against lightly regarded opposition.

Alabama is still No. 1, receiving 56 out of 61 first-place votes Sunday. No. 2 Florida State, No. 3 Ohio State and No. 4 Michigan all moved up one spot. The Seminoles got four first-place votes and Michigan received one.

Clemson fell from second to fifth after a four-point win against Troy. No. 16 Georgia dropped seven spots after beating FCS Nicholls by two.

Oklahoma State was ranked 22nd when it lost 30-27 to Central Michigan on a final play touchdown Saturday. Officials admitted after the game they misinterpreted a rule, and the play should not have been granted. The Cowboys were three-touchdown favorites against Central Michigan.
