Template:1971 Pacific-8 football standings The 1971 Oregon Webfoots football team represented the University of Oregon during the 1971 college football season. Home games were played in Eugene at Autzen Stadium.

Led by fifth-year head coach Jerry Frei, the Ducks were 5–6 overall and 2–4 in the Pacific-8 Conference. They did not play UCLA and lost the Civil War to Oregon State for an eighth consecutive year.[1]

Oregon was led by junior quarterback Dan Fouts and senior All-American halfback Bobby Moore (Ahmad Rashād), the fourth overall pick of the 1972 NFL Draft, taken by the St. Louis Cardinals. Rashād played ten seasons in the NFL, primarily as a wide receiver with the Minnesota Vikings.

Two months after the season, Frei resigned as head coach on January 19, 1972,[2][3] and assistant coach Dick Enright was promoted two weeks later.[4][5]
