Mario Cristobal's team will have to rebound for another top-25 matchup at No. 24 Cal

The Ducks let the Pac-12 opener slip away but didn’t slip in the Associated Press poll.

Oregon moved up one spot to No. 19 after Saturday’s crushing 38-31 overtime loss to Stanford at Autzen Stadium.

The Cardinal (4-0, 2-0) remains at No. 7 behind Alabama, Georgia, Clemson, Ohio State, LSU and Oklahoma.

The Ducks (3-1, 0-1) will be in another top-25 matchup next Saturday in Berkeley. California (3-0, 0-0), coming off a bye week, moved into the AP poll at No. 24.

“This conference is wide open, and you’ve got to get back on it right away,” coach Mario Cristobal said after Oregon failed to hold on to a 10-point lead over the final four minutes of regulation. “You’ve got to shake it off and shake it off fast because you can’t let this thing beat you twice.”

Oregon dropped one spot from No. 19 to No. 20 in the coaches poll.
