Back in April in his look at the Top 26, Phil Steele – had the Ducks pegged at #3 with Stanford right behind at #4. Now we take a look at his Top 40 Teams heading into 2013. The list is very Pac 12 friendly. There are seven teams from the conference on his list, including an intriguing USC at #6 right behind Oregon.
On the Receiving Corps Steele says Oregon’s is the most experienced in years and Oregon continues to upgrade the talent at wideout. The Ducks at running back could be a question this year but again Steele sees strength with the Ducks. Even without Kenjon Barner he likes the ‘next man up’ mentality.
