On Saturday night, the No. 3 team in college football went down in spectacular fashion.
Oregon, the No. 3 team in the country, was a big favorite against Stanford on Saturday afternoon. The Ducks were favored by more than a touchdown, and they were expected to remain undefeated and in contention for the College Football Playoff. Stanford, on the other hand, had other ideas. On Saturday night, the Cardinal defeated the Ducks 31-24 in overtime.

When the polls come out on Sunday afternoon, we’ll have a new No. 3 overall team.

There’s still a lot of college football season left, but Oregon will almost certainly need to win out – and possibly get some help – to make the College Football Playoff. Nokia News
