EUGENE, Ore. - After running its winning streak to 14 games with a perfect 5-0 weekend at the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic, the Oregon softball team climbed two spots in both top-25 polls.
The Ducks (14-1) jumped from No. 6 to No. 4 in the USA Today/NFCA poll and rose from No. 8 to No. 6 in the ESPN.com/USA Softball poll.
Under head coach Mike White, Oregon has been ranked for 55 weeks in a row in the NFCA poll and 63 straight weeks in the USA Softball poll.
Oregon defeated top-25 ranked LSU (23) and Notre Dame (24) last weekend at the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic, in addition to knocking off Fordham, Virginia and UC Davis.
The weekend the Ducks will face their toughest opposition yet, as No. 25 ranked Auburn and consensus No. 1 ranked Florida await at the Diamond 9 Citrus Classic in Orlando, Fla. Both games will be broadcast live on ESPN3.com.
During its 14 game winning streak, Oregon is 3-0 in extra innings and has run ruled seven teams.
