The rumors of Dan Lanning and Auburn having mutual interest in making him their next coach have been swirling around as of late after the Tigers fired Bryan Harsin

However, Lanning made a statement that will calm the minds of Oregon fans for the time being.

How much weight should Duck fans put behind his remarks?

On today’s episode of Locked On Ducks, Spencer McLaughlin looks at Oregon’s standing in the national College Football landscape ahead of Tuesday’s release of the latest CFP rankings.

How important was it that the Ducks looked more impressive against an inferior team than USC on Saturday?

To get into the College Football Playoff in 2022, Oregon Football has to have more take place than just winning out and finishing 12-1.

They need help from other teams across the country—and some of that help came to fruition on Saturday from teams ranging from Notre Dame to LSU.
