Oregon cracks top 5 for Joel Klatt with three games left in regular season

We are getting down to crunch time in the world of college football. The month of November is always notorious for separating the contenders from the pretenders.

So far, it appears the Oregon Ducks very much belong in the former group, having blown out their competition in impressive fashion over the past few weeks, and looking like one of the best teams in the nation ever since losing their first game of the season back in early October.

While the College Football Playoff rankings act as the be-all-end-all at this point in the season, we still like to look around and see where some of the most popular analysts have teams ranked, and what some of the top  computer models think of the Ducks.

While ESPN’s Football Power Index certainly thinks highly of Oregon, let’s take a look at how Fox Sports’ analyst Joel Klatt views the Ducks after Week 10:
