Rankings from AP Poll

The 1975 Oregon Webfoots football team represented the University of Oregon in the Pacific-8 Conference (Pac-8) during the 1975 NCAA Division I football season.[1] Led by second-year head coach Don Read, the Ducks were 3–8 overall (2–5 in the Pac-8, sixth place).

Oregon defeated Utah of the WAC in late October to break a 14-game losing streak, the nation's longest at the time.[2][3][4] They won the next week at Washington State, and the season-ending Civil War over Oregon State, the final game for Beavers' head coach Dee Andros, only his second loss in the rivalry in his eleven seasons.[5][6]
