Ducks Listed in Athlon Early Top 25

Coming off a win in the Redbox bowl, the talk now turns to 2019 for Oregon and most fanbases. 

We still have a recruiting period to finish and we don’t even have a national champion for 2018 yet, but Athlon Sports isn’t letting that slow them down.

On Wednesday they delivered a ‘way too early’ top 25, which I’m certain will be the first of many in the coming weeks. 

Even though I personally think No. 12 is a little too high for Oregon with so many road games, it’s still good for Oregon to be getting some recognition. Notably Auburn was listed at No. 23 which makes the season opener for both a potential top 25 matchup.

Oregon is the top-ranked Pac-12 program with Washington 2 spots behind at No. 14. Utah checked in at No. 16 with Washington State rounding out the top 25. USC and UCLA were not listed.

The top ten is listed below.

1. Alabama

2. Clemson

3. Georgia

4. Oklahoma

5. Ohio State

6. Texas

7. Florida

8. Michigan

9. LSU

10. Texas A&M
