Rankings from AP Poll

The 1970 Oregon Webfoots football team represented the University of Oregon during the 1970 college football season. Home games were played in Eugene at Autzen Stadium, with one at Civic Stadium in Portland.[1]

Led by fourth-year head coach Jerry Frei, the Ducks were 6–4–1 overall and 4–3 in the Pacific-8 Conference, tied for second. The opener was played in Portland,[2] the Ducks' first game there in four years; the last was in 1966, prior to the opening of Autzen. After upsetting both UCLA and USC, Oregon was 5–2 and ranked #16 in the AP Poll,[3] but won just one of their last four games.

The Ducks lost the season-ending Civil War game to Oregon State for a seventh consecutive year.[4]
