Where Oregon Ducks rank in final ESPN FPI of 2023 season

The Oregon Ducks had a successful 2023 college football season. While it fell short of the ultimate goal of making the College Football Playoffs, a 12-win season and a victory in the Fiesta Bowl is never something a fan base should turn down.

Throughout the year, we’ve kept track of the Ducks’ place in the ESPN Football Power Index, a ranking that measures a team’s success based on expected point margins vs. average opponents on a neutral field. It is a ranking that offers a different look at the power balance in the nation, contrary to the College Football Playoff rankings, the Associated Press Poll, or the Coaches Poll.

The Ducks have fared well in the ESPN FPI, routinely ranking near the top of the list. So how do they fare with only one game left to play? Here’s a look:
