Template:2018 Pac-12 football standings The 2018 Oregon Ducks football team represented the University of Oregon during the 2018 NCAA Division I FBS football season. The team was led by first-year head coach Mario Cristobal who took over for Willie Taggart who departed for Florida State.

The team bounced back with wins over No. 24 California and No. 7 Washington and rose to 12th in the polls before losing three of their next four games. The Ducks finished the regular season in fourth in the Pac-12 North Division with a conference record of 5–4. They were invited to the Redbox Bowl, where they defeated Michigan State to end the year at 9–4 overall.

The Oregon offense was led by junior quarterback Justin Herbert, who finished in second the Pac-12 Conference with 31 total touchdowns (29 passing and 2 rushing).[1] Running back CJ Verdell finished with 1,018 rushing yards and 10 rushing touchdowns. Defensively, the team was led by defensive end Jalen Jelks, who was named first-team all-conference.
