Rankings from AP Poll

The 2011 Oregon Ducks football team represented the University of Oregon in the 2011 NCAA Division I FBS football season. The team was led by third year head coach Chip Kelly and played their home games at Autzen Stadium for the 45th straight year. They are a member of the Pac-12 Conference in the North Division.

The Ducks won their third straight Pac-12 championship title after defeating UCLA in the inaugural Pac-12 Football Championship Game. They represented the Pac-12 in the Rose Bowl, where they defeated Wisconsin 45-38 to win their first Rose Bowl Championship since 1917. It was their second Rose Bowl appearance in three years and their sixth overall. This would be Oregon's third consecutive year in a BCS bowl game. The Ducks finished the season 12-2 (8-1 Pac-12).

Previous season

In 2010, The Ducks repeated as Pac-10 Conference champions, were at one time ranked number one in all of the major media polls and BCS rankings for the first time ever, and finished the regular season undefeated with a school-record 12 wins--the first undefeated and untied regular season in the school's 117-year football history. They earned a berth in the BCS National Championship Game, which they narrowly lost to Auburn on a field goal as time expired.

On September 3, Oregon lost to LSU 40-27, due in part to losing 4 turnovers while only forcing 1 LSU turnover. LSU was able to score after three of those turnovers, which led to 20 points, and built a 30-13 lead before the end of the third quarter. Oregon freshman running back De'Anthony Thomas fumbled on consecutive Oregon possessions late in the third quarter, one on a rushing attempt and then on the ensuing kickoff. The Tigers scored touchdowns as a result of both turnovers with runs from Michael Ford and Spencer Ware in a span of less than 4 minutes. Oregon outgained LSU in total offensive yards 335 to 273 during the game.[15]
