For the first time in way too long of a time, we’re getting a brand new EA Sports college football game. Ahead of the upcoming college football season will be the release of the highly anticipated EA Sports College Football 25. And just as the Oregon football team is getting respect elsewhere, it sounds like EA Sports is also pretty high on what the Ducks can achieve.

EA Sports has released its preseason offensive rankings for College Football 25 and Dan Lanning’s Oregon Ducks hold a solid spot with their impressive rankings. They’re not number one in the rankings, but they’re pretty dang close. 

Oregon football takes No. 2 spot in EA Sports College Football 25 offensive preseason rankings

While they don’t hold the top spot in the country, the Oregon Ducks hold a decent spot, all things considered. Ahead of the 2024 college football season, the Ducks earned the ranking as the second-best offense in the nation, according to EA Sports. Interestingly enough, the Ducks are tied with the Georgia Bulldogs at an impressive 94 overall rating, but Oregon was listed as the No. 2 team on the list.

This shouldn’t really shock folks as the Ducks boast a ton of talent and will likely be lighting up scoreboards all throughout the Big Ten this season.

As the upcoming Oregon football season keeps getting closer, these rankings provide a pretty fun list to go over. It’s not exactly the best list ever. Plenty of people are going to point out that Colorado struggled last season. And the Arizona Wildcats are going to look a good bit different from what they did a season ago.

But, well, for Oregon Ducks fans, this seems pretty valid. It’ll be fascinating to see how it all plays out throughout this season.
