Oregon claims No. 1 ranking in new AP Top 25

Oregon ascended to the top spot in this week’s Associated Press Top 25 poll for the first time in school history, moving up after Ohio State lost 31-18 at Wisconsin on Saturday night.

LaMichael JamesICONLaMichael James and the Ducks are the AP's new No. 1 team.

Oregon is the 43rd team to hold the No. 1 spot in the AP poll, which dates to 1936. The last time a team was No. 1 for the first time was 20 years ago, when Virginia rose to No. 1 on Oct. 14, 1990.

Ohio State’s loss came a week after then-No. 1 Alabama was beaten by South Carolina. Oregon will try to avoid becoming the third straight No. 1 team to lose when it hosts UCLA on Thursday night.

Here is a look at the complete poll.

And don’t forget that the new NFP Top 25 will be posted late Monday afternoon.
