TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) A little over a year ago, Oregon unceremoniously fell from the national rankings after years of being rated among the nation's best.
Now, after a 3-0 start in nonconference play, the Ducks are back at No. 24 heading into their Pac-12 opener at Arizona State. Oregon has been ranked at one time or another for 20 consecutive seasons.
None of which seems to mean much to first-year coach Willie Taggart.
