Previous season[edit | edit source]

Summary[edit | edit source]

The Ducks had high expectations to make a run at a BCS national championship title. This was the first year under new head coach Mark Helfrich, after the departure of Chip Kelly to the NFL in the previous year. They were undefeated up to November 7, 2013, where they lost to Stanford, dimming their national championship aspirations. Their second loss of the season to Arizona on November 23, 2013, finally ended any chance of a national or conference championship. They were passed over for an at-large BCS bid at #10 in the country, and were selected to be the Pac-12 representative to the Alamo bowl. In the bowl game, they defeated the Texas 30-7. They finished the year #9 in the Coaches and AP Polls.
