Dixon dazzles as No. 13 Oregon defeat Stanford

Sep 23, 2007 - 8:06 AM PALO ALTO, California (Ticker) -- Dennis Dixon and Oregon continue to prove they can light up the scoreboard.

Dixon threw for two of his four touchdowns in the third quarter as 13th-ranked Oregon rallied in the second half to beat Stanford, 55-31, in Saturday's Pac-10 Conference opener.

The Ducks (4-0, 1-0 Pac-10) pushed their winning streak to six consecutive games over the Cardinal, who leads the all-time series, 43-27-1.

The Ducks entered ranked third in the nation with 977 yards on the ground, but turned to the air this time. Dixon completed 27-of-36 for 367 yards as Oregon managed 589 yards of total offense.

After watching Stanford's offense post 28 points in the second quarter behind the efforts of Anthony Kimble and T.C. Ostrander to grab a 31-24 lead, Oregon regrouped following the break.

Dixon hooked up with Ed Dickson on a 33-yard touchdown, capping a seven-play, 73-yard drive to tie the score at 31-31 with 11:17 remaining in the third quarter.

Jeremiah Johnson's 12-yard TD scamper four minutes later put the Ducks ahead for good and Dixon helped Oregon find the end zone once again with a 15-yard toss to Jaison Williams with 5:37 left in the third quarter for a 45-31 bulge.

The Ducks opened the game hitting on all cylinders, as Dixon found Cameron Colvin for a 71-yard touchdown just 15 seconds in on their first offensive possesion. The signal-caller also scored on a 4-yard run for a 21-3 cushion with 2:40 to go.

"(the field) started opening up in the second half," said Dixon, who gained 37 yards on the ground. "We started to stretch it out and find the open guy. I knew someone would step up and (Colvin) did that."

Colvin had career-best eight catches for 136 yards and Williams hauled in seven for 113 yards and two TDs as the Ducks outscored the Cardinal, 31-0, in the second half.

Ostrander went 25-of-44 for 262 yards with two touchdowns and Kimble finished with 119 yards on 16 carries for the Cardinal, who haven't won in the series at home since 1997.

Despite the loss, Stanford (1-2, 0-2) played much better after suffering its first shutout in 11 seasons - a 37-0 setback to San Jose State last weekend.
